The travel theme this week at Where’s my backpack? is hot. For this challenge I decided to take one photo from the Forest Park Balloon Festival and edit it two different ways:
Both versions were edited using Photomatix. The obvious difference here is the color vs. black and white. One thing I did differently with the two which might not be as obvious was that I changed the exposure bracketing. The version that is color includes a photo where the exposure was very high. I did that to bring out the blue in the balloon which was not visible in the original unedited photo. The bracketing on the black and white version is much closer together.
Which do you prefer? Which do you think works better with the theme? Have an opinion? please share it in the comment section.
