AB Friday: One Photo Focus

July 2016 One Photo Focus.jpg Final image

The first Friday (Saturday here in the future) is time for this great challenge.

This month the image was by  Bren Ryan of RyanPhotography.  Her work is totally amazing.  I love her edits.

This was the original image. Very dark.  So first edited it with Nik HDR, which brought out a lot of the details but the turret was still too dark.  So I focused on that for a few more edits to make the castle more even in tones.

Then I edited it in Nik Analog and Topaz textures to give the vintage feel I was after.  It just reminded me of Hogwarts Castle for some reason.

This month there has been some really creative effects.  It really is inspiring to see what others do to the image.

The first Saturday (Friday for those in the past) showcase our editing of one photo.  This month we were given this photo by Julie over at juliepowell2014.  Her photography and editing is amazing.

To go for my usual vintage feel, I edited with Nik Collection – HDR and then played with the texture filters in the Topaz Textures.

There have been some amazing editing this month – very adventurous. So check them out over at Stacy‘s blog.
