Making of Forest Walk

Image
Hello,
today I want to share how I processed an image that turned out to be quite nice, but on a second  look felt not good regarding its composition.

Here is the result that I like, but somehow knew wouldn't work



The Processing

I used one of my Lightroom presets to do the basic processing. I usually tweak this preset to adapt it to the image.

From here:


to here:


I decided to apply what is called "Orton-effect" to gat a dreamy soft glow. You can fin my tutorial on this here--> How to create the Orton Effect
I liked the overall tones and chose only to add two textures to achieve a subtle canvas texture

Take a look at the texture WHITEWALLS  and FLUTTER on my site.

Though I liked the processing, I wasn't satisfied with the image as a whole. Yesterday I came up with two different crops. Thus making two images out of one.
1. the one with the path as leading line


and 2. the part on the left, where the light is breaking through


What do you think? Do you sometimes face si…

Lost Robin & Big Texture Pack

Image
Hello,
the other day I was suddenly disturbed by a soft bang on the pane of my terrace door and I found a little bird sitting on my floor. The little creature ( a robin) was obviously dazed and didn't move, but started flying around when I approached it trying to get it out of my apartment without causing further harm. It decided to hide behind one of my loudspeakers. I lured it out of hiding with some bread crumbs and after flying around in my room, stopping here and there it finally found its way out again. The image you see was taken on one of its stops.






The original of this image wasn't particularly interesting and the empty space of the wall and part of the door frame were destined to be treated with textures.


Some time ago I collaborated with app developers and contributed roughly 100 textures to their app called Stackables but I also decided to make these textures available for desktops as well.
I used three of these textures to process this image.
