Bradley Wiggins Paris Tour Win
And now for something totally different. With winter hanging on with a cold wind from Siberia for weeks, I have had far too much time on my hands. Hence this excursion into converting a Photo to a line drawing. The picture is one of the countless ones I took at last years Tour de France finish in Paris. Yellow Jersey winner Bradley Wiggins is in the middle with Mark Cavendish behind.
This was taken with a Sony A550 with a Sigma 28-200 zoom at 55mm. I used ISO 400 to gain a high shutter speed of 1/1250th second.
The image was opened in Camera Raw and 2 additional images were created at +2EV and -2Ev for a “false HDR” with each image having Noiseware Pro applied. A Photoshop action I had saved was used to create the extra images automatically. The images were saved as tiffs.
Outputted in Photomatix to detail enhancer.
In Photoshop the first step was a lot of cloning work to remove the rider going out of the picture on the far left. I wanted to keep space on the left for the riders to move into so did not want to crop the image. The cloning included copying people and feet from other parts of the picture.
The steps to convert the image to a line drawing can be followed at my new tutorial which includes screenshots. See Line Drawing Tutorial
BEFORE AND AFTER
Below are the Before and After images. First the original image. Then the tonemapped image and then the final result after line drawing conversion.
