Photo 101 Rehab: Street Life

It’s been a long and hard withdrawal time since my last visit to Lucile’s Photo 101 Rehab. Now I’m back with vengeance and with a street life photo. As always, the photo was shot with Nikon D80 and post-processed in Corel PaintShop with the following major edits:

  • correcting the perspective
  • enhancing sharpness, clarity and contrast
  • applying a strong local tone mapping filter
  • desaturating all colours except yellow
  • using a dark vignette effect

    1. Thanks for your warm welcome, fellow inmate. I had a hard choice between keeping the yellow and keeping the red in the edit, but then went for the yellow in an attempt to be more original than my usual…

    1. Yes, red and yellow were very prominent in the original picture, and though my first impulse was to desaturate all colours but red, I eventually tried it with yellow – it’s about experimenting, right? 😉
