Following my post yesterday, I thought I’d share this minor edit from another snap I caught at the Tate Modern yesterday.
This is the original:
It’s the nice shot but the it needs some correcting.
I’ll start by saying it’s a jpeg from my Pixel 2 so there isn’t the dynamic range of a RAW file to allow full post processing.
Anyway there’s enough to play with and this is what I see:
- There is no main focal point and there’s a lot going on
- The person on the left with the rucksack takes the attention away from the little girl in the foreground
- The colours are bright but a bit flat
- The back of the turbine hall is dark and full of shadows which could be brightened
- It’s not level
So what did I do in post production?
- I cropped in to focus on the little girl in the foreground and the large ball in the background
- I also cropped out the guy with the rucksack
- I aligned the photo to make sure it was level
- I boosted the exposure
- I brightened the shadows
- I brought up the saturation of the yellows, the Cyan’s and the blues
And that’s it.
This is the final photograph
I edited the photo with Lightroom Mobile on my Pixel 2.
Which do you prefer? Do you like my edit?
Let me know what you think.
