Here’s my week two edit for Robyn’s One-Four Challenge. This challenge asks that you edit the same picture in four ways over four weeks.
For this second edit I cropped it a little looser in order to keep more of the tyre tracks on the sand in the foreground. Next, rather than just lightening the face of the man (as that made it stand out too much against his dark jumper last week) this time I used the levels settings to tweak the shadows on the whole of his figure. Many thanks to lensaddiction for the suggestions.
For this edit I also wanted to make it look a little later in the day. To do so I added a faint (20%) magenta photo filter, giving the image a sunset look. After adding this layer I had to select the man’s skin and desaturate it slightly – he’d turned rather orange! I finished off by selecting and brightening the highlights.
Here’s the original image and week one for comparison:
I hope you all like it. Feel free to let me know what you might like to see in future edits. I’m always happy to accept suggestions.
