Before and after

Ok, this is a first for me. When Stacy from Visual Venturing announced the February One Photo Focus feature, I was intrigued. Normally, this is an image I would not try to process, but this is exactly what made me want to try and see what can be done. I think I am slightly touched by OCD, so from the start the perspective would discourage me, but the Lens Correction feature in Lightroom does wonders.

I will not explain the entire process here, but basically perspective, highlights and shadows were the main problems that needed to be fixed. I won’t say my edited versions are perfect, but there is a certain mood the image conveys, I loooovee the details of the boat against the moody sky and the city, plus there is a little man up there on the mast (I think that’s how it’s called) who gives a great perspective on how big this sailboat is. Definitely something I wouldn’t be ashamed to share on Instagram. The versions I sent Stacy had some vintage frames added in Snapseed, but I would just add the clean ones here, the way I exported them from Lightroom.

If you want to see the other edited versions please check the link at the beginning of my blog. Also, here is the edit of the photographer, Stacey from Lens Addiction.

Below the two edited images (one slightly warm, the other in a colder tone), and the original RAW image.

  1. Claudia welcome to the challenge, and thankyou for your bravery in taking on what was a difficult image – so difficult that its sat on my hard drive in the Too Hard basket for 5 years! I like the colours in your first version, it feels like a slightly old fashioned photo.
