Hi everyone – Here is the first photo to be edit. To get a DNG photo file for edit, please follow this link:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/jtyd6dqgsfl2f0l/Weekly_Edit_Photo_1.dng

 

Please post your edited resized Jpeg below and don’t forget to tell us what you did to the photo, so we all can learn. 

 

This is how unedited picture looks like. I was trying to find some random photo with a lot of space for improvement.

Good luck and I am looking forward to see your edits. There is no limits on how you can edit it.

Most important have fun!

Sand_Surfers.jpgHi

Just had a quick 20 minutes play with this in Photoshop.

I thought the water looked a little like a sand dune, so I cut the background out with the seaweeds and added a beach. Then tweaked the curves and hue/saturation until the water and sand have a similar tone. I like the way the Pyramids at first glance make you assume you’re in the desert but the splash of the surfers comes out pure white reminding you it’s water.

 

Cheers

Yogi

First I have aligned the horizon and cropped the picture.

Then I have adjusted the white balance, contrast, shadows, colors and something else, I did everything with Aperture.

I hope you like it ConfusedLaugh

Edits were made in Lightroom 5 and PSE 10.

In Lightroom I first leveled the image and removed all spotting.  I then decreased highlights to -100, increased shadows to +100 and found the black and white points.  Adjustments were made to contrast, clarity and vibrance.  The image was sharpened a bit with some post crop vignetting added.

In PSE I cropped to 8×10 removing the sky.  The midtone input level was lowered to .90.

Considerable use of the clone tool was used to move two of the surfers within the image, add a wave,
and remove the unattractive seaweed.

I guess one more wouldn’t hurt.
This is a bit bluer. It’s cropped tighter, and bordered.
Two of the surfers have drowned.

Early to the beach
Lightroom 5 Adjustments:

Graduated filter with full 4.0 tint increase to make sky.
Circular Radial filter at maximum 4 stop over exposure to create rising sun.
Cloned horizon and sea at 35% opacity over bottom half of rising sun to make reflection on water.
Graduated filters with under and over exposures at 45% angles from bottom left and upper right.

Oke a little strange combination but that’s photoshop. Okay a little strange combination of pictures, but that is the advantage of photoshop.

The idea was to combine a few photos that capture In an image by editing a fantasy image. I think it worked out. Tell me what you think.Weekly_Edit_Photo_1_original_bewerkt-1-1.jpg
