Once a month, the After Before Friday Forum community picks one photo to edit. June’s One Photo Focus was a picture taken by Stacy Fisher, who hosts the challenge on her site Visual Venturing. So as the name suggests, the forum of photographers takes and edits that one photo. The original photo is seen below.
I tried to think of how I could make this edit a bit different, make it original. So I decided to apply the poster edge filter (with the saturation decreased completely) to one layer of the photo. But that wasn’t enough. It needed more. To add a little pizazz, I added the glowing edges filter to another layer of the photo. After that I turned the opacity down to 40 percent and raised the saturation by 11 percent. After that, I merged the two layers and then bumped up the contrast 100 percent and brought down the brightness by 50 percent. And bam! That is how I came up with this edited version below?
What do you think? Feel free to comment and critique. I won’t get my feelings hurt. Opinions and feedback are a great way to learn.
