Photoshop Before and After

I thought it was time for another before/after.

I started with a screen cap from Heroes’ fourth season, episode six. Samuel is baptizing Sylar into the carnival.

Nice enough pic. But I looked at this and thought, “It can be so much better.”

First of all, the colors were washed out, as they often are on the ‘net. And there was no drama. Where’s the drama?

So I started playing. You know I love to play. 🙂

I did my usual adjustments, but it wasn’t enough. Yeah, contrast was improved, colors were more vibrant, but I thought it would look so much better if I turned day….

… into night.

I used the render light filter to put the glow in the lanterns and add subtle lens flares. I’m using this as wallpaper right now. There is drama, which I love!

Happy holidays, everyone. I’ll be spending it with good friends and family.

See you Wednesday.
