…and the original; I think I prefer this to the square crop 🤔
But I’m not finished; I edited through a monochrome filter for Cee’s Black & White Challenge, then tried desaturating it for a colder feel as the original has a lot of warmth to it, owing to the depth of colour (it was about -1℃ after all) & finally trying a dramatic cool filter.
Seemed an obvious to combine the two challenges in the one post. I’ve done some very basic editing on this one, using Apple’s embedded photo editing software.
The first edit is a basic square crop, normal way up & inverted.
For the next edit, I dropped the light to it’s lowest setting. A lot of detail in the shot is lost, but the colours really come into their own with a rich contrast between the blue & yellow.
The opposite, this time. I ramped the light setting right up; the colours wash out to a degree, but the foreground detail in Lensy & the ice covered log he’s sat on become discernible.
Trying something different this time — I’ve desaturated shots before to give a washed out look, but never single colours. For this one I desaturated all the colours apart from blue to give a colder feel to match the sub zero temperature that this was shot in. The difference is quite subtle, hence the slider (the left hand shot is the original).
