I really like this photo and I did not crop it for a change.  Some of the major steps I took for this photo are:

  • I took out the closet couple who were walking the wall. I liked just the one couple far away.
  • Used a few different gradient layers to get the coloring the way I wanted it.
  • Brought up the exposure a little bit.

Editing was done in both Adobe Bridge and Nik Software.

  1. Removing the one couple seems like such an obvious choice, now that I’ve seen it! Really does help to accentuate the leading line of the wall. And I like the pastel look you gave it, Cee. The scene now looks more early spring than late fall or early winter 🙂


  2. Cee, I love the golden hue you gave the stonework. It really seems to emphasize the texture. And getting rid of that firs couple was a smart thing to do, they distract from the mood of the piece. Overall, a great job!


    1. Thanks Katie. I sure had fun playing with your photo. I hope you like what people came up with. This photo was already good I wasn’t sure if I could help it out or not. 😀
