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.
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.
