In this episode, we work on a picture I took at Cave Point County Park, in Door County, WI. As usual, the edits are done in Capture One Pro 10.
The initial edit is a standard edit
The second edit has exaggerated color and clarity.
Black and white. This is a higher contrast edit, which I prefer for this image.
Selective reduced clarity for a soft focus effect. The picture takes on a more dreamy quality with the softer focus and muted colors.
Which do you prefer? I think on this one I like the second photo. I would probably not use the soft focus effect much, but it is something interesting to play with.
Which do you prefer, or what would you have done differently? Please leave a comment below.
