One Photo Focus – May


Photography taken by Julie Powell and edited by RyanPhotography

It is that time of month again, when we enter the monthly Photo Challenge held by Stacy Fischer of Visual Venturing… called One Photo Focus. I wanted to create a dreamy looking photograph to this wonderful house.. so I did my basic edits in Lightroom and lowered the clarity to achieve the dreamy, soft looking photo… I played around with the exposure and contrast and then I sent the file to Nik Silver Efex where I applied a preset to the photograph and a control point over the arches of the door.

After that I then edited the file in Photoshop to add a sunburst in the top left hand corner and then sent the photo back into Lightroom where I did some dodging and burning and added a slight vignette.
