This week’s challenge came in the form of a swamp and dead trees. This is the photograph we were challenged to edit.
And here is my edit:
I wanted to bump up the saturation and color, so I worked on that first. Then I copied the top half of the picture and rotated it 180 degree. I applied an ocean ripple filter, then added a little bit of the gaussian blur filter. I opened up HDR Toning, under the adjustments menu in Photoshop, and increased the saturation even more and adjusted a few other options.
Finally I added a polaroid frame that I recently acquired after reading Alicia’s post.
I was going for a surreal, painted look. I also wanted to bring out more color and boldness. I am really happy with the results!
