Its time again for my favourite photo challenge – One Photo Focus – where a group of us edit the same image with our individual visions. You can see details and all the images here.
As I am still recovering from my surgery I kept it simple, edited the image in LR and then processed to a BW as I wanted to bring out the texture in the peeling paint on the boat.
Then I took it into Nik Silver Efex until I found a preset I liked and added a slight blue tint and a vignette to bring focus onto the boat.
This is what I ended up with:
Out of curiosity I then took the image into Topaz Texture FX and had a play with adding a couple of different textures just to add some interest and depth to the sky which was looking a bit empty. It slightly darkened the image and changed its colour tone a bit but I liked the final result.
Thanks Laura for a fun image with lots of interesting texture to work with, I hope you like my efforts.
