Further Edit to Teddy and The Girl Image

Above is the updated image, below is the previous final version.

I wasn’t 100% happy with the brighter corner – because I had the very bright patches on the dress, I needed some matching light source to account for that.  Some useful feedback gave me reason to revisit this image so this is the new and improved version.

Steps taken:

Made some colour tonal adjustments and taken out a lot of the masks that brightened the top corner and evened out the overall lighting

A very subtle full moon has been added to the top right corner, blended into the clouds

A light texture was added.

Overall I am much happier about this version, it feels much more cohesive and natural – does it work better for you?

  1. A very evocative image. I like the new version, it brings the viewer’s eye to the figure walking away. Maybe it’s my display monitor, but the rails no longer are apparent so it isn’t entirely obvious that she is walking on a rail line. That fact seems important to the scene, so perhaps just a touch lighter on the rails would do the trick. The ties and rocks on the rail bed could be left as is. Just a thought. Nicely done!

    Wow, what a cool image! You’re a very talented photographer! I definitely like the updated image better. The first looks a bit too “processed”, if you know what I mean. I think the upper-right corner looked too bright and unnatural. I think because the light source logically should be behind her in order to illuminate her dress as bright as it is, but the original makes the it look like the light source is up and to her right, instead of behind her. Overall, the i think the second photo is a huge improvement!

Love to hear your thoughts on my post!
