Before and after - show your editing prowess Post processing can transform images that might, at a glance, be considered to be without potential. This board has been created to show the before and after results of editing and post-processing. The differences can be very dramatic!

Leaves before and after

Two years ago my wife and I took a cruise on the Rhine and stopped at the town of Chochem in the Moselle Valley. We were walking on a street when I spotted this display of leaves covering a wall. The first shot is unedited. The color is flat and there's a conspicuous dead leaf.



I then selected a section to clone



Finally a significant bump in saturation (maybe too much?) rendered a significant departure from the original. This shot has sold very well at craft fairs.

The significant bump in saturation obviously influenced the sales so that makes it ok

Re: Leaves before and after

Nothing wrong with a boost in colour, in fact if you look around you everything is rather drab and faded really, the eye & brain likes to see thing's different and out of the norm, trick is not to over do it, for an abstract type shot this is just about right for me ;-)
