My head’s into photography. Upgraded to Adobe CS5. Got some plug-ins. Have a great digital stack of Indonesia photos, taken in 1997 with my first Canon Elph using now-obsolete Advantix (APS) film.* A few of them are beauties that deserve a little more loving care.
BEFORE. I always liked this view — the blues and the juxtaposition of the kampung slums with the yacht club. And always, reflections on the water. Sky is washed out, however.
The resulting photo is a combination of the “Low Key” preset on the top layer, with the center area of interest masked through to a layer using the “Sunshine” preset. I like the drama.
For iPad lovers: Try Nik’s Snapseed app. Also good for some drama.
*Work done by ScanMyPhotos negative scanning service, resulting in excellent, gigantic jpegs.
