It’s always fun to process someone else’s photographs as it makes you think outside of your comfort zone.
The photo below is what Billie provided to me. She described it as a “scenic overlook in Colorado Springs – before the sun burned off the overcast day.”
I’ve never been to Colorado Springs, so this was a fun one. Immediately I knew I wanted to play with lens corrections.
During the editing I decided to go further than just lens corrections. I added some split toning, a graduated filter to enhance the mountain view and then a radial filter to enhance the scene overall. I use radial filters many times in place of the vignette tool as it offers more fine tuned control.
In the end I’ve provided Billie with a dreamy landscape that is borderline surreal.
I hope she likes it as much as I do!
