    Default Ground Glass View

    Something I created a few months ago. Original photo shot near sunset.
    I have been seeking ways to create more artistic versions of my work, and not cliché.
    I tried turning it upside down, but that didn't work for me.
    I really like working and experimenting with textures.

    E-M1, 12-40Pro ISO200 - f6.3 -125th sec +.03 EV processed in CS6ACR, and Perfect Photo Suite 8.

    Critique welcome .

    I really like this but don't understand the grid. Is that part of the ground glass? Please excuse my ignorance. To me, I think it would look better without the grid. But as you know I'm an odd one.

    I like the textures. Very well done.

    Not a fan of the vignetting though.

    Yes Lorey, most large format view cameras had a gridded ground glass to aid in adjusting the bellows for distortion correction. The image on the glass was cast upside down since they did not incorporate prisms or mirrors to reverse.

    Hi David, I think the texture and general treatment enhances the subject, and I don't mind the vignetting which gives a feeling of 'enclosure'.
    But I agree with Lorey. I don't like the grid, and the reason or origin for it is too obscure to have meaning for me.
    I like your interest in experimenting

    For an occasional something-different, I really like it. It looks aged, indeed. (I wish I knew a tiny, tiny fraction of what you do about post-processing.) Thanks for showing!

    Never being exposed to large format or reading about it I never would have known about the grid. Thanks for the enlightenment. I like the one without the grid better. If it were mine I'd back off on the texture a bit, maybe about 30% or so. But the important thing is if you're going to print and frame it you should do what looks best to you. I think it's some very good PP and I do like it. Hope to see more of your experiments.

    I understood the groundglass view and prefer it. To me, this looks like something printed on watercolour paper. Guess I'm different.

    This sort of work takes one from photographer status to visual artist status. I like getting it "right" in the camera, but having the options to play with an image and create something else . . . well, that's icing on the cake.
