This is this week’s black and white Wordless Wednesday:
It’s a large iron and glass affair that I saw in front of a restaurant in Murano – the canal is seen in the reflection … inside a dinner table waits for a client.
One of my readers asked me to do a walk through with the editing.
I used Picasa 3 but most of the apps in Picasa 3 can be found on just about any editing program.
Here is the original:
After fixing the colour adding some highlights/fill lights to bring out the lantern – I then decided to crop and straighten it:
I then added a little shadowing and ‘warmified’ it – in other words added flesh tones, which brought the lantern out nicely … but I wasn’t pleased with the general colouring so I saturated and contrasted a bit:
At this point – the colours were emphasized enough to try to go black and white – so I used the filtered black and white app filtering out some of the red – added a drop shadow frame and signed the finished work!
And with this last edit, I’m linking the post to One Word Photo Challenge for this week’s colour – copper
