Grab -13 Years of Pain

This is a frame grab from a documentary 'am working on and part of what we should touch on is the child labor. This frame was captured from tape through cineform AVI converted to 1280 * 720 and then grabed out of After Effects Quality 5. CC was done on AE too.

Peace,
Amr

Hey Amr, these are some wonderfully shot images, but if I might be so bold: I like the uncorrected grabs much better than the corrected ones! They look much more grubby and have more of the atmosphere I read in your composition. I understand that your trying to lift the white level a bit, but imho it would be better if you would do it somewhere half-way. Also very personal of course.

I agree... the un-colorcorrected stuff looks better.

Personally, I think both the uncorrected and corrected versions look great. I'm going to with popular opinion and say that I slightly prefer the look of the uncorrected ones...

I too prefer the unCCed footage...however if you can recall the colors when you/whomever was shooting that day...that should be how it is CCed. The mood of the uncc'ed colors fits the ruggedness of the boy, however.

I think in the close up/UnCC one is too flat, it has too little contrast...the CC one has a much better range of bright/dark. Of the wider shots i think the UnCC one is pretty good, the overall desaturated color I think makes for a nice composition since your levels are bit more dynamic. I'd say go for the hue/saturation of the unCC ones but (sorta) more of the white/black levels of the CC ones. Just make sure not to blow out your whites (i.e. keep in that nice detail in the crumbling wall on the wider, unCC shot).

I'd probably go somewhere inbetween as well - the atmosphere is there in the uncorrected but a tad on the dark side and the corrected punch out some hidden detail. Nice shots. Great subject matter.
