Water Ski Slalom Chichester
This is a scan of a slide I took in 1993. It goes back to my early days of Photography and Sports Photography. I had approached a Water Ski Club at old gravel pit lakes near Chichester West Sussex, UK. I just asked to go in a tow boat to take pictures in return for prints, they said yes and I returned several times for great picture opportunities like this.
The picture at that time would have been taken with a Minolta Camera and Zoom Lens, probably set at 200mm for this image.
Adjustments were made in Topaz and Photoshop.
The Scanner is the Nikon Coolscan 5
Topaz adjust was used with vibrant presets group with crisp preset to increase detail.
Adjustment made to levels.
Contrast increased a little.
Vibrance reduced slightly.
Saturation Green reduced 100% to remove a green cast especially on the water.
Dust and scratches applied.
Layers flattened before going on to sharpening and noise reduction.
Duplicate layer Noiseware Pro.
Second duplicate layer with mask to apply extra sharpening and contrast with low amount and high radius using Unsharp mask (Clarity Effect) The settings were 37 amount and 37 radius. A layer mask was used to exclude this effect from some areas
BEFORE AND AFTER
Below are the Before and After images. First the original scan and then the final result.
