I know klaus, im saying it on the way that you do it SO GREAT, you take care of every single Pixel on the Image.. it is just amazing man…:-O
Klaus any chance you could explain the nested layers more in a post? Love the video and it has me fired up to revisit some shots that really need the same treatment.
Amazing work! Thanks for great video as well!
I’m going to try some of this for sure. Thanks for sharing this, Klaus!
How long did the processing take?
Incredible! I started with a DSLR and photography, but never really got into Photoshop. I see that taking a picture takes only a few snaps, post-processing seems to be the art that transforms a rough product into a diamond. Great work!
There are indeed a million things you can do in post-processing that will improve your images. Even very basic steps can really help. In fact, I think every professional photographer and most amateurs process their images today. Of course, you can do that to a varying degree. 😉
Jaw dropping awesome work!!!
