Honestly, I was up during the night thinking about this photo:
I took this photo about a week ago and I just like it, but maybe not as-shot. I think it is a quiet image but the colors in it are too loud. I’d tried a number of variations on saturation and also strictly black and white interpretations, but nothing quite struck me as finished.
I woke up in the middle of the night and thought, it needs a slight crop first. So, with my first cup of tea of the day, that’s what I did. Then I desaturated it a bit, then added a filter that I liked, then put it in monochrome, then added back in a bit of the green. A lot of steps, and a lot of tinkering to get to this:
I’m happy with this result. I tinkered around enough till I found the quiet I was looking for. What do you think of this edit? Your thoughts are welcome below.
