  Mini#34 Remembering AMBaker
Entry 7 of 25
It's Cloudy Inside (revisited)       ©2016 A.N.Other
Panasonic DMC-TZ30       7th place, 102 points
1/100s, f3.9, ISO 100, ?, ?, ?, ?
Post-Processing: Blended three exposures together
Corrected vertical and horizontal perspectives
Used skew control to correct verticals
Used recompose tool to adjust window and brick thickness dimentions
Layered sky onto building
Slight saturation change
Noise reduction on windows
Resized to 800 x 751 as was the original
      Extra Info: I thought a good way to remember Alex's memory would be to spend some effort to try to reproduce as close as I could one of his more successful entries.
To that end I spent some time searching for a similar building using Google maps amazing 3D feature. When I eventually found the closest match I could I photographed it but as the sky was dull, I also took a shot of blue sky with fluffy clouds a few days later.
I then blended the two photos together to closer reproduce Alex's original entry which you can see here http://www.panachallenge.com/challenge/show_entry.php?entry=9031&challenge=158 .
This photo has been cropped to exactly the same dimensions Alex's original - 800x751 pixels.

    great, thoughtful tribute!

    Thank you both very much. I'm glad you think so Lo :-) .

John - I could have made it closer to Alex's original by toning the clouds similar to the original and changing the colours of the bricks etc. but I wanted to leave some of my own style in the photo as you suggested.

    A very thoughtful tribute to Alex's work. I can't believe you were able to reproduce it so faithfully. Well done.

    I like this overall, pity that you did not get it in 1 image. Also I would have preferred a image with your style and not a copy.

    Thank you both very much :-) .

I wish it was Cookiejar. It took quite a bit of fiddling to get the angles and dimensions a reasonable match!

    I respect the work you have put in here to produce this shot. When I saw it I thought you had found the same building.

    When I first saw this image, I felt it was taken by Alex. You successfully managed to emulate his exact style. What a thoughtful and nice tribute. It was worth all of the hard work.

    I'm sure Alex would have appreciated the time and effort you took to replicate his photo. Well done.

Oct 22, 2016
    Thank you all for the great comments. I'm pleased you think it was worth all the work :-) .

    Like the color and patterns, with just enough irregularity in the clouds to provide interest. Great craftsmanship in recreating AMB's work.

    I looked at Alex's original and I think you did it justice. Beautiful colors and shapes.
