Post Processing Challenge Saturday 15th July 2017

Recommended Posts

Initially, I used Define 2 (NIK bundle) to scan for noise; having found some, I used its preset reduction level. In Color Efex, I then went to the pro contrast filter. After eliminating all but 35% of a color cast, I corrected the as-shot contrast by 20% and added "dynamic contrast" by 10%. After thinking for quite a while, I decided to utilize HDR Efex Pro2's "balanced" preset. Using its tonality menu, I decreased contrast by 7% and increased structure by 20%. Finally I used the sharpen tool in PSE15 to sharpen the area of shadows and to sharpen the buildings above.208595311_1463205_fea03f9434633a655a286a32ca3ce8eccopy.thumb.jpg.26f619fa4bd01a470c452796531d7b2d.jpg
