Linking with Ashley for my good to wow shoot and edit.
The other day I shared my SOOC:
Frankly, I don't know what I did to this image, and I don't know that it's much better. I am new to using camera raw. I did try to adjust white balance as that was the biggest issue with the original. I think true working lobster boats are pretty grungy so I wanted to preserve that feel as well as the sense that it was a cool overcast and foggy day.
So, I played with all those fancy sliders. I couldn't decide whether to up the saturation or perhaps even take it down a notch. This was shot with a long zoom so clarity was an issue and I made use of that as well as the high pass sharpening. I also added a layer and blurred and screened out some of the grey boat to make it seem less vibrant than the Katherine Rose.
I then cropped and used the lasso tool to remove and patch out the yellow mooring in the lower left. I don't know, from here it doesn't seem like there's too much change. I'll try again next week. All this editing is an art-and takes time and trial and error.
Now I need another cup of coffee. Thanks Ashley for the tutorial help. Hope I did some justice to the process.
