Venus of SLAM #4
This is my final variation on this bronze stature at the St. Louis Art Museum, this time with Man Ray firmly in mind. The path here was a bit long, as per technical below. Susan said, "She looks like she has a skin disease." That, of course, means I'm on the right track.
Technical: Nikon D700, Nikkor 180mm f2.8, ISO 1600, WB - Tungsten, f/3.2 @ 1/200s, handheld. RAW file processed in Lightroom 2.6, noise reduction in Nik Dfine, edited in Nik Color Efex Pro to apply the "Gold Reflector" style, which pulled up the detail and shifted the color to an overall yellow. Finally, monochrome conversion in Nik Silver Efex Pro, applying the Antique Solarization style, applied red filter and full strength copper toner effect.
