Highlighting the creative magic behind post-processed photos
Before we get to this week’s galleries, just a reminder that there’s still time to participate in May’s One Photo Focus on May 1, where all participants submit their post-processed version of this image submitted by Shane Francescut of The Weekly Minute:
Now, on to this week’s ABFriday galleries, with many thanks to all those participating!
My submission: Sometimes I practice my camera skills by shooting objects around the house. This week, I’m post-processing a candlestick. Exciting? Not really. But hold on to your hats for the video, where you’ll learn about using radial filters to selectively change exposure in different parts of a photo! Can you stand the excitement? 😉

Robin says: Earth Day was this week, and I’ve been spending my photography time in several local parks where Mother Nature is the prime attraction. And in Virginia, this week is when the Virginia bluebells put on their show. This image was taken on April 22 (Earth Day) last year but I had not processed it until now. For details on how the “Before” was transformed into the “After,” check out my post here.

Anne-Cécile says: I call this ” I drowned in your eyes.” If any of you want some information about how I do “these things,” just email me! My email is on my blog.

Nic says: I bought a new camera and I made a rookie mistake, I forgot to check the white balance. Normally that would be no problem, except that this camera doesn’t do RAW, only JPG… oh man. So I had to find a way to quickly fix 50 images with Tungsten WB on images taken outside at Sunrise. Let’s just say everything was *very* BLUE! Check out my blog for how I fixed this quickly. And if you want to know what the pup is looking at, I’ll reveal that too! 😀

Ben says: With the new edition of Lightroom Life on Creative cloud i changed my mind about what image I was going to edit this week. I choose an image I had trouble with editing in lightroom last year, but with the new fun toys in the new addition I have given it another go. My post will be live here.

Lynne says: This was an experiment in changing the mood of a photo.
Submitted by Loré Dombaj — Snow’s Fissures and Fractures
Loré says: It happens once in a million, but there are images I really like how they were taken originally. This is one of them. For the sake of argument, I played around and posted the best “after” version. Still, I prefer original.

Emilio says: The Old Las Vegas Mormon Fort was the first structure built by people of European blood fifty years before Las Vegas became what Las Vegas is today. Interesting that the Old Mormons pitched their tents or parked their buggies just down the block from The Strip, a mecca that provides fun and variety for all sinners!

Michelle says: Since I seem to be a hot-mess of unorganized and didn’t work on my AB Friday post on my laptop in time, I decided to try a little photo editing with a picture on my iPhone. This way, I don’t miss my AB Friday addiction fix and I am getting practice with my fairly new app. A few months ago, I installed this application called Camera Plus, which I generally use for macro shots since I don’t have a macro lens for my Nikon or Cannon. So, here is a quick little blurb on what I did with a phone picture and app…
