Hi and I hope that you are all well? Not long now until the Olympic games begin, and I have to say that I am quite excited about it all.
I was going through my hard drive and deleting unwanted images and I found this one that I have included into this post. This image was taken on a long exposure on a bright sunny day in London on the South side of the Thames facing St Paul’s Cathedral. So I thought before I delete it let me select some of the presets that I have in Lightroom and see whether anything happens. So having selected a Graduated Filter preset, I got the image looking slightly reasonable. Then I opened it in Photoshop and played around with the levels, as well as the blend modes. Now having edited the image, walking away and coming back to it, I kind of like it and refer to it as a ‘happy accident’ as well as a little lesson to us all not to delete your RAW images until you at least have had a play with them. You never know!
I know that the image was over exposed and it has been played with in Photoshop, but what do you think? Let me know your thoughts.
