Three Hikers Enjoy Sunrise on the side of a Mountain Wilderness
I wanted to add cooler looking light. I also wanted to bring attention to the people on the lookout tower as they need it because they are small to begin with. Finally, I wanted to add drama. Here’s how I did it. All about processing. 3…2…1..Go.
Cooler Looking Light = Lightroom. I used my preset “Epic Dirt Road Landscape” available in my presets package. Then I used Topaz Labs Lens Effects “Awesomeness 1” at 25% to add some final spice.
Bring Attention to People on the Tower = I used Topaz Labs Detail 3 and selected “Abstraction 1.” This made everything blurry. Then I masked the in focus people back in. This subtly draws your eye to them.
Add Drama = Heavy Vignettes and Gradients to give it more shadow and black.
