This weeks challenge asks for a series of three. So I decided to show you, in 3 steps, my proces of post-processing. Post-processing to me is mostly part of the creative process, not a way to save pictures that I failed to take correctly (except for dirt on the sensor or slight changes in the framing. Here we go:
We start with the picture straight from the camera. Shot at 24mm – f/8.0 – 1/160s – ISO 100 in RAW format.
It was a cloudy day, so the foreground is a bit too dark, as I wanted to have as much detail in the sky as possible. But we can get that back and, while we’re at it, correct the white balance to get more pleasing colors.
Better, isn’t it? Now there is only a bit of cropping, trying not to get too crazy with the dodge and burn brushes and a bit of saturation and we’re done.
This is it. Hope you like the outcome. Have a great weekend!
