13. On Top of the World


This post is about the other side of photography: Post-processing

I used Lightroom for the editing.

Original Image                                                                                                                                  Final Image

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The main points I observed which can make this image better were:

1. The background is slightly over-exposed.

2. The reds in the T-shirt of boy and the umbrella can be improved ( more saturated and luminant ).

3. The blue color of the T-shirt of girl can be more luminant.

4. The background color is washed out.

This is the histogram of original image. The over-exposed background is evident here.

1. White balance: Changed the white balance to slightly blue as it was giving a good contrast to the reds.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. I decreased the exposure and used the recovery bar to recover details in the highlights. I increased the Blacks slightly to increase the contrast.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. I changed the highlights and shadows tone to green to reduce the numbers of colors in the photograph. It also gave more impact to the couple.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Gave the photograph a slight vignetting to give more emphasis to couple.
