A Comparison Of 2 Almost Identical Photos

Tue Oct 03, 2006 2:24 pm

I was reading the thread about the great wall/singapore hybrid livery and noticed that two pictures were taken of the bird on the same day and almost exact location. You can tell because the clouds are almost the same.

Any way I thought it was cool that both these pictures were taken at the same time but what I thought was real interesting is that there is a huge difference in color between the two.

Just thought this was interesting when I saw it. Also does anyone else have any photos that were taken from the same place at the same time yet look different from each other?

Yeh, this is peoples different editing techniques and perhaps camera

... and different viewpoints. One prefers the yellowish light, the other not.

Which brings me back to many old discussions here about manipulation of a photo: where does editing end and manipulation start?

Just to make it sure: I like both photos and would judge none of them as beeing manipulated. But they show, how grey this border to manipulation is.

I think alot of these differences are established in-camera when the shot is taken. Yes you can change a fair amount with editing but that will become noticable. I think Chads image seems to me to be closer to 'reality' than Matthews but that takes nothing away from Matthews shot either!

And where should the line be drawn with regards editing? Well lets face it, its endless until its noticed.

I think camera has alot to do with it. One was Nikon and the other was Canon.
Same day, same airplane, same spot.

post processing and camera settings are huge. Looks like the WB on Chad's camera is much cooler than Matthews.

I'll bet color space makes a big difference.

Another reason RAW is a useful tool. Yes, get it right blah blah blah, but its always nice to play around with WB etc to see how results vary. And of course vary so much and have an impact on a photo.

I can't find it right now, but there was a great pic of a russian bomber (i think?) on the top shots a couple days ago, that looked like the clouds were watercolored in afterwards. Can someone explain what caused this effect, and if was done in post processing why it OK and others not?

that photo was just poor post-processing. The photog has been asked to reupload a new version. I am guessing it was scanned from a 4 x 6 print, and is 13 years old, so a challenge to say the least.

There's a few more where we have somewhat different angles, but the above ones are really very similar, yet the colours are different.

Of course, we can also see this happening at airshows... just two examples. The latter one is nice, because you can see the different shutter speeds.
