After-Before Friday: Week 4

My entry to After-Before Friday week 4, hosted by Visual Ventury, is a very simple image taken in Cabo de La Vela, La Goajira, Colombia.

The edition, as usual, was in Photoshop CS3 and consisted basically in:

First of all, cropping a bit to straighten the horizon line out. Then, new layers of level and curve, in order to get more contrast in the sky. Finally, dodging sand’s highlights and midtones to get it darker, and blurring the shadows, midtones, and highlights in the roof and poles to get some texture there.

I hope you enjoy it as well as the other submitions to the forum this week.

  2. Jaime, I like the edits you chose for this photo. Darkening the shadows and the posts in the foreground made a beautiful frame for the boat against the beautiful blue water. Makes me long for a day at the beach 🙂 Thanks so much for participating!
