THIS IS A SCHEULED POST. I WILL RETURN TO CHECKING BLOGS SOON. It’s One Photo Focus time! This really is a fun challenge. We were all given an image to work on, so I’ve posted both my image and the original below it. Thank you to Cee Neuner for the original image!
Because this house has such a homey, cozy feeling with the huge greenery providing a framework for the front door and porch, I decided on cropping it to tell the story of how good it would feel to approach this house. Then I ran it through Topaz Restyle and chose a palette to represent the sun setting. After that I applied Topaz Impression at a reduced opacity and then dodged and burned just a bit here and there. Finally I added some neutral density filters selectively around the edges. Hope you enjoy it.
