ABFriday Week 39 – One Photo Focus

This week, in the Visual Venturing ABFriday Challenge, we submit a postprocessed image of a jpeg by Loré Dombaj of Snow’s Fissures and Fractures .

So, as usual in Italy, I show the “Before” image…

 Cropped in 1×1, I made some regulation: less lights, more shadows and increase clarity


After this, in Color Efex, made a formula with cross processing, dark contrast and cross balance…

and here the “after”…

  1. Ma che bella!!! Bravissimo Max
    Eh si, ultimamente ci si incrocia poco. Ammetto che è un periodo di svogliatezza, troppe cose mi impegnano e alla sera sono stanchissima, quindi
    sto trascurando un po’ blog e amici vari. Chiedo venia 🙂
    Abbi un sereno fine settimana carissimo.
    Ciao, Pat

  2. Max, I really like the square crop that you (and a few others) chose for Loré’s image! It helped to get rid of the distracting background in a nice way. I’m a huge fan of Color Efex Pro but have never used the cross processing or cross balance – your “recipe” brought out a lot of lovely textures and tones. I’ll have to experiment with those filters 🙂

  3. Max – it turned out lovely! I like how your changes darkened up the tables and the cherub and really brought out the textures. I don’t use Color Efex, so I’m not quite sure what you did there, but the end result was well worth it.
