After-Before Friday Week 3

For edition:

I used Photoshop CS3, as usual.

First of all, I made the corresponding adjustment to levels.

This time, I increased the saturation to highlight the colors as well as the contrast between them.

In addition, I used the Doge tool to lighten the whites, and the Burn tool to darken the rest of the colors in the umbrella. The same applied for the ground’s lawn.

Finally, I made a subtle crop to the image just to eliminate part of the trash spots and finished that job by cloning the rest using the Stamp and Parch tools.

  2. Nicely done, Jaime! I love the mystery of the photo, wondering who is beneath the umbrella, and also where you were that you were able to get this great shot 😉 Great colors and composition too. Thanks so much for continuing to support ABFriday. Slow and steady wins the race, as the saying goes, to get this going!

  3. Love this shot Jaime, the composition and colours are fantastic! And it’s a great example of how a few simple edits can make a world of difference. Great work!
