After Before Forum Wk 80; A Peaceful Room

The After Before Forum is a place where photographers of all levels can show how they get the wow in their photography. It is easy and fun to take part, you can check out how here.

PSA; next week is One Photo Focus with Stacy at Visual Venturing if you want to take part you can find more information and the picture being edited here. The After before forum will be back on April the 8th with submissions by the 6th.

This weeks photo takes me back to Malbrok, a fantastic teutonic castle. This week i have been looking for some peace and quiet, This room for me is a place I would love to have been able to escape to.

The editing was quite straightforward. I knew the shot could be edited with a low key style with all the details in the shadows being pigged by a few areas of highlights. For black and white I have a daguerreotype preset that I created which automatically gives an image the look I wanted. I then tidied up the highlights on the floor to let the defects of the glas shine through. I also created a vignette of contrast to create a more focused image. The final finishing touches was some slight split toning.
