Lava Entry Toned

Same shot as yesterday, but some severe toning put into the mix. Processing this way can reveal a great deal of texture lost in a more realistic processing of the image. The result is a hyper-realistic image. Such images are fun to play about with, but are they real? Are they honest? Are they art?

One thought on “Lava Entry Toned”

  1. Nature herself has greatly skewed our view of the world. We see green 10 times exaggerated compared to deep blue or deep red. No doubt sharks have their contrast sensors ridiculously biased.

    Is this cheating/faking in a world lit by a yellow sun with green foliage and hazy blue seas?
