I enjoy walking through churches. I’m a bit of a sucker for stained glass. Usually, such windows tell a biblical story, but sometimes it’s just a gem like this:
This window functions more as a decorative way to let in light and create a welcoming environment. From that original file I created this version:
The first edit here was to change the white balance. I used the eyedropper in the Develop filter of Luminar to pick a spot that was a warm grey-blue. This warmed the image nicely. I brought the whites down and boosted the blacks a bit. Then I added some clarity. I’ve also added a vignette here. One of the things that I like about the vignette filter is that it is really easy to customize the center from which the vignette will be added.
What do you think of my edit? The biggest change I think is really the warmth of the image. Do you prefer the cooler tone of the original? Feel free to leave a comment below.
