He's the Man (Sunday Snapshot)

Superman Will 1

Well he's definitely got the right posture, especially in the above image.
 Chest out, shoulders back....and the expression. I suppose that's one of
contemplating saving the world?

Superman Will 2

Superman represents truth, honor and the American way.

Superman Will 3

He's stronger than a locomotive, faster than a speeding bullet,
and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.

Superman Will 4

And yes he can fly.
Certainly in his dreams.

Because he's Superman.

My little Superman. ;)

Superman Will 5

Taken with my Nikon d700
and 85mm 1.4 lens
ISO 400
1/200 sec.

These were taken shortly before sunset, hence the golden light
and some haze and a tiny bit of flare.
All edited in photoshop using Levels and Curves.
Image #2 and 4 have Sarah Gardner's textures applied,
at 'screen' on a low opacity and removed with a black brush off of Will.

In images #1 and 5, I enhanced the natural flare and haze
by adding an overlay from a Nichole Van action from her
Sunflares and Sunbursts set. She has videos to follow on her web site
and they were easy to apply.
Again, you use a black brush and remove the amount of flare that you would like.
It's all personal taste.
Overlays of flares and hazes have been used for a while in editing
and it's a fun effect to try and play with.
