My submission: While wandering the beautiful streets of Île St. Louis in Paris, we came upon the amazing La Cure Gourmande, a sweet and biscuit shop that is a colorful feast for the eyes. The composition and tone of the original photo were not quite what I wanted it to be. Lightrom 5.4 to the rescue! The video details my basic edits, along with the use of the straightening tool and custom adjustments to the post-crop vignette sliders. (The edited photo was posted as part of Weekly Photo Challenge: Threshold).
I’ve also included the after and before images.

Manal says “I took these two photographs at York University campus mainly because of the architectural symmetry often seen in older buildings in the UK. I used Adobe Photoshop to edit the photographs, using the clone tool to remove the sign and general post processing such as a slight straightening, sharpening and a B&W filter ensuring the green tone was darker than the rest.”

Isaiah says “This was taken in my neighborhood in New York. At the time I took the picture, I was walking by that part of the the wall. It felt like the walls were bleeding for me to take the picture. The original photo still achieves its message but I wanted to make it more cinematic to grab the viewer and put an emphasis on the bleeding part of the wall. I edited the photo in Photoshop CS6.”
