I’ve been poking away at some older pictures, trying to juice them for more Arty goodness.
Take these two for example, the original (retouched) version is on the Left. I tried to deepen the contrast and enhance the decayed look of it. On the right we have a deeper contrast pulled from a semi-HDR version of the same image, enhanced via multiple processes.
In this second Example; I have retouched an earlier picture in an attempt to give it a bit more punch, which I think I achieved. As opposed to the above examples, I didn’t take any hands-on steps to enhance the image; instead relying upon simple overall color and tone enhancement.
