Another month complete, I enjoyed working on this photograph this month. I hope you enjoyed the transformation.
This week I went for an old school California postcard feeling. I started with the black and white version from week 1 and started playing around.
- Started with week 1 and added the preset, Yesteryear from Lightroom
- Added a graduated filter and adjusted it until I liked the effect, mostly focusing on highlight and shadows, although I made adjustments to most of the settings that I could.
- At this point I didn’t like the sky, so I adjusted the aqua hue and luminescence. I also adjusted the green saturation to bring out the trees in the background a bit more.
- Finally, I thought I would try a slightly closer crop and I thought it worked well so I kept it.
I will leave you with a gallery of all the different versions for this month. I would really appreciate hearing in the comments which version you prefer and why.
I am already thinking about images for next month. I hope I find one as enjoyable to work on as this one was.
