On the beach at Glenelg. I’ve heightened the colours of the rock to bring them out. Stunning.
I suppose this is less a photograph and more of a created image. The purist side of me tends to squirm when a photograph is pushed this far so as to make the image so much less a likeness of the object. I’ll just have to learn to let my artist side shove the purist out the way.
A very colourful entry, today. This is a rock I photographed on a walk to Kea Point at Aoraki in NZ. In Lightroom, I’ve close-cropped it then boosted the clarity, vibrance and saturation dramatically. I then adjusted the colours to try to balance the overall effect (blue, for example, tends to dominate if pushed too far).
Love the result; hope you do too.
