One-Four Challenge: July Week Two

It’s time for week two of Robyn’s One-Four Challenge for July.

Week Two Edit
Week Two Edit

For this second edit I decided to go black and white. I began by opening the week one edit in Photoshop where I removed the filter from the sky and the adjustment levels, keeping the crop and clean up. I then added a black and white gradient map. I then opened in Camera Raw where I reduced the contrast, increased the clarity and tweaked the shadows and highlights. I finished off by opening the image in PicMonkey where I added a vignette.

Here’s the original image and week one edit for comparison:

  1. I so agree – the BW brings out the wonderful detail in this image, especially the brickwork.
    I really like the way you are using whatever software you need to get your result. Nicely done!

    1. Thank you, Robyn. I really just play around with the sliders in Photoshop and Camera Raw until I like what I see! I have picked up a few things from reading other people’s processes but I still don’t really know what I’m doing a lot of the time. 😀
