one photo focus photo: august

brendakoffordOnePhotoFocusAugust

Submitted in response to Visual Venturing’s One Photo Focus for August.  The original photograph was created by Robin at photographybykent. Edited by Brenda Kofford.

As I began my editing of Robin’s raw image in Capture One, I also applied a keystone adjustment to the ferris wheel before cropping and moving into ON 1 Enhance Effects and then Color Efex Pro 2.  While in Color Efex, I played around with their Detail Extractor, Tonal Contrast, Vintage, and Sunlight layers before ending with Polaroid Transfer to give it a holiday souvenir touch.  I then finished the image with Photoshop’s dodging tool to lightly bring out the reflections in the water.

One Photo Focus: August

The raw image was tweaked a bit in Capture One: crop, exposure, contrast, clarity, structure, shadow as well as some adjustment layers to the background, people, and water.

Within Perfect Effects I played around with several layers to enhance the jetty, sky, as well as the ocean.
