For this week’s image I have tried to create a softer look.
From the week one image, I…
- Increased the overall exposure by a couple of stops which achieved the lightness I wanted, it did however leave the water a fairly yellowy green colour.
- To deal with this, I used the split toning function, I chose a blue colour for the shadows, which created a better colour for the water and to counterbalance the resulting coldness, I used a beige yellow colour for the highlights, then adjusted the split toning balance to the warmer side.
- It was still a little bit too yellow so in the HSL panel, I adjusted the yellow hue to a more orangy tone which created a more pleasing overall colour.
- Then using the radial tool, I created a vignette to darken and unsharpen the edges a little.
