One Photo Focus for August
It’s time for One Photo Focus, part of After Before Friday hosted by Stacy at Visual venturing. This weeks photo is from Katie Prior at Drawing with light.
I found this photo very interesting, and something I would love to take myself. The lines are so interesting, and the feel of the ocean is quite evident. I felt the image needed drama. The old looking stones on the jetty, the crashing waves, the dark sky.
This is my after edits.
This is the original image. A wonderful image to start with.
I started by using a preset that I like in Lightroom. It’s called Big sky and comes in 4 different “strengths”. I used the strongest one. This gave it the drama I was looking for. I then bumped up the whites to highlight the stones and the waves. I used an adjustment brush on the waves crashing on the jetty, to highlight them even more.
That was about it. I hope Katie likes what I did with her image.
