Holland vs. Spain – A Tale of Two Cities

As I’m sure everybody knows, tonight will mark the end of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. It has undoubtedly been a brilliant tournament, full of highs (Van Bronckhorst’s fabulous goal against Uruguay) and lows (South Africa, the hosts, going out so early). As a tribute to the two countries contesting the title (Holland and Spain), this is a selection of wonderful photography of their capital cities (Amsterdam and Madrid respectively). There is as many pictures as the team has scored goals – 12 pictures of Amsterdam, 7 of Madrid. If you wanted more Madrid photos, blame the team!

An under billed, yet, one of the most path breaking features of CS5, the Refine Edge feature has finally put an end to those exasperating hours of fine tuning the edges.

Mask creation happens to be one of the most important and difficult tasks in Photoshop. Edge selection has one of the more trying aspects of Photoshop as the transition of edges in earlier versions of Photoshop was either uniformly hard or soft. This always caused problems when there was an image with both hard and soft edges, such as clothes making a hard edge and hair making a soft edge. Also, with all the blurring out of the edges, there was always the problem of adjusting the contrast between the edges. With the Refine Edge along with the Decontaminate Colors option even a beginner can come up with results professionals in the earlier versions of Photoshop would have struggled with.
