Happy New year everyone! I feel sort of like this boat that Laura Macky of Laura Macky Photography– what an original name for her business 🙂 – shot; I’m not quite standing upright this morning, somewhat like a boat out of water and falling apart at the seams. (Well, excuse me but I’m slightly hung over and my mind is not working so well right now.) Anyway, there wasn’t much to do with Laura’s great shot but we’re not here to praise her skills. So I didn’t do very much. In fact, I don’t remember much of what I did as Stacy Fischer of Visual Venturing sent us Laura’s photo way to early. I know she meant well, but she nevertheless did not take into account my Attention Deficit Disorder. Or lack of long term memory. So, I know I tried to make the grunge and detail stand out a bit more. I might have added a slight split tone. I know I tried but I’m not sure I left it in. Oh, yeah! I did add some clouds and I also cropped tighter. And I used a light vignette rather than the usual dark one. Other than that…???
After looking at my completed version that I submitted to Stacy, I have continued to play around with my processing. Below is my final version, until I learn different processing techniques.
