During an excursion by the town of Manaure, in the Colombian Goajira region, I found this wall very interesting because of the textures present in it, produced by the typical erosion of the constructions set by the sea. For the edition process, I focused on highlight the textures and the contrast between the colors, in order to highlight that gorgeous royal blue. So, what I basically did, in Photoshop CS3, was:
1 Duplicate the main layer.
2 New level and curve layers to darken the pale colors.
3 New bright and contrast layer to increase the contrast and luminosity.
4 Softly erased the dark section in the window, in order to get back the detail of the man’s head inside the room.
5 New saturation layer to increase, a little bit more, the impact of the vibrant colors.
