Initially looking at this photo it is quite dry and not very interesting like a close up photo is intended. Therefore I’m going to use editing tools that will enhance and make this photo more vibrant rather than greyish and dull. I will be in particular brighten up the moss in the photo to add a bit of colour.
This is another photo that I have picked out as one of my favourite photos taken. I have used Adobe Photoshop CS6 to edit.
The first adjustment I made was changing the levels, I used the sliders to push more light into the photo.
The next adjustment I used was the brightness contrast tool to brighten up the light that I had added into the photo, this was to try make the photo seem less dark and grey.
Finally as previously mentioned I wanted add some colour to this photo, to do this I would need to enhance the colour green (the moss) on the wood. To do this I used the vibrance tool.
Here is the final image.
You can clearly see the difference the different adjustments have made.
