Unlike normal people, I find the seasonal atmosphere oppressive. It feels heavy, overwhelming, blurry. These are the emotions I’m trying to convey with my contribution to Lucile’s Photo 101 Rehab group.
The photo was taken at a Christmas fair with Nikon D80 and processed in Corel PaintShop Pro X6. Here are the major edits:
- increasing contrast
- enhancing sharpness and clarity
- applying local tone mapping
- using a dark blurry vignette effect
- using a heavy black and white filter
