One Four Challenge – July Week 1

This week for Robyn’s July One Four Challenge I chose a photo I took in a restaurant in Nha Trang, Vietnam in December. I was taken by the colorful umbrellas they had hanging from the ceiling.

July 4 ways orig_edited-1

I opened the original in the editor of Photoshop Elements, adjusted the levels to lighten the photo because the original was taken in dim lighting, then straightened it – because I have a tendency to tilt the camera a little – and cropped.

I then created a new layer, sharpened it a bit using the high pass filter, and set the blending mode to hard light. I added a vignette, and decided to call it good for this week.

    Nice work – the vignette is subtle, and the rest of the PS work is unnoticeable – the best kind of PS work.

    You have balanced everything in this photo beautifully and I think the vignette finishes the edges off just right. It will be interesting to see where you go from here. ๐Ÿ™‚
