After I finished processing the photos from the divisional playoffs in Asheville (see previous post), I decided to work a little on stylizing some of them. I had an idea of the effect that I wanted, but I’m not sure what to call it - high-pass, selectively desaturated, painting-like, doesn’t quite roll off the tongue. But you can see for yourself. I ended up passing the photos through Lightroom, Photomatix and Photoshop to get the effect. Some of the images end up looking comic-book-like, some end up looking hyper-real, depending on the treatment I though looked best for each one.
