I have never seen pictures like these. How do you do this?
photoshop --- trust me...
Yes, editing is an important part of digital photography. I use Photoshop, Picasa, and PhotoDraw to do that work. However, there are many other factors that come into play. Having a good, versatile camera is a start, but one must also have a sense of what to shoot and how to shoot it. My primarily interest is in landscape and architectural photography, and much of that has to do with understanding how to frame geometric shapes to get the kind of composition I'm looking for. Obviously, sensitivity to the effects of natural light is a critical element as well. So beefeater is right to suggest that digital editing plays a role in the ORL style, but there is much to consider prior to editing—some of it is easy to talk about, some not. Knowing what you want and how to achieve it is what makes photography an art.
No amount of photo wizardy replaces a good eye.If you can't look at something and instantly know it would make a great photo, then Photoshop won't do you any good.One of the best "eyes" I ever knew was photographer Mike Giambroni.
I have photoshop CS2, but am still learning how to use it. Thanks Matt for showing us your pictures.
