It’s Friday again! Well, it’s Saturday but iheartfaces is an American website 🙂 I got a bit carried away this week and have come up with 2 edits.
First, the original:
And my edits:
Number 1 I used Levels to selectively darken areas, particularly the sky as it was over exposed. I also added a touch of blue’s saturation and a contrast boost. I also used levels to lighten some of the shadow on the man’s face so I could see more detail in his features. Lastly I sharpened the image, concentrating on the man and the truck.
Number 2 I used number 1 as the base, but I increased the contrast more and coverted to black and white but added a layer of brown with a gradient map to give it more of a sepia tone. I love sepia!
It’s interesting to see how other’s choose to edit, I really enjoy it and feel like I learn a heap. If you want to have a look too, head over to www.iheartfaces.com and check them out.
