In the first week of the One Four Challenge of this month, I commented that the first version had a problem with contrast. I wanted to go back and try and fix this. The problem was in the sky and tower, the foreground had some nice contrast but i was finding it difficult to balance.
This week I used colour luminance and saturation channels to balance the contrast and try and bring some balance to the image. I did also use some local adjustment tools to darken the sky some more and pull out some details in the tower itself.
Although the foreground still has stronger contrast I am ok with, as it is like a contrasted reflection of the subject. I also like the colours more in this version, as the colours felt a little week and washed out in week one.
I would love to know what you think. Let me know in the comments below.
Also remember to check out Robyn’s post for this week, as this challenge is her brain child.
