The June mission for the WE35 project was to swap RAW files with another member of the WE35 project. The member we swapped with was determined randomly from Justin and Armando of The Photo Frontier.
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!
