After my confession that I was bored with this image, many commented that I was a wuss. OK, not really. But they did suggest I step out of my comfort zone occasionally, try something creative rather than recycle old presets or filters.Yes, they really did say that! And me? I took it to heart! Sort of. There is as much difference as possible in this week’s processing, I think, as Lightroom will allow as I have not yet delved into Photoshop, which I have acquired as part of the Lightroom CC package. Heck, I haven’t even looked at the intro to the Cloud.
Allow me to show you a brief retrospective of the month of June. To date:
So, without further ado:
I can hear you all clamoring to know what I have done. Well, hell if I know. Actually, I do but it didn’t quite turn out as I had expected. I wanted to create a dream-like image, those hot, lazy days of summer. There are four gradiant filters used rather than a split tone. They are orange, purple, blue, and then one of green. They all seem to effect different ares of the image differently. Then there is a brush throughout to throw a haze over areas. In the original image there was only a dirt field beyond the trees. I colored a section blue to mimic a lake or pond where the school kids are traveling to. I then cropped at a ration of 2.35 to 1, which is the ratio used for movies shot in Cinemascope!
