It is the time for the excitement again – One Photo Focus!
Here is the original picture.
It looks like a hot summer day on a lake.
Lightroom and photoshop were used for adjustment.
After cropping out some sky and water, I also bump up the shadow to let the buildings and trees besides the lake show off. Then I increased the clarity to reveal more ray of sunlight. I also warmed up the entire picture, then I reduced some amount of vibrance and saturation to make the picture more like monochromatic.
I am most interested in adding some people in the picture to fill those empty water space. I spent sometime thinking what I should add, one of my hobbies – yoga, inspired me. But I have never practiced yoga on the surface of water, so I downloaded some images from internet showing couple of ladies practicing yoga on paddle boards.
Photoshop was used to insert the images of yoga practice on paddle boards through layers. Even though I might never be able to balance on any paddle boards, I am happy to see others doing the practice.
Here is the final results.
Thanks for looking, any feedbacks are welcomed and appreciated.
