Lamppost Soliloquy

Before - Edited slightly in LightroomAfter - Photoshop editing makes a world of difference

What you can do in Photoshop is just out of this world! I knew this picture was useless unless I could somehow add some light inside the lamp. Once this was accomplished using another picture taken back in January, I darkened up the background using blending modes, cloned in some extra branches to fill in the distracting white sky, and added a small, circular gradient around the light to make it look like it was glowing. This particular picture has 9 layers, but it was very simple to put together, the edits make a world of difference.

Very seldom do I actually go to this extreme with my pictures. It’s just fun to see how a picture can be transformed every-once-in-a-while.

    Neat edits, the edited picture is much more interesting.
