thanks I wont bother explaining how I came to my finished image on this occasion as there was plenty of editing done during my first attempt in colour. All this would have gone un noticed once I applied the sepia effect using Niktools.

Re: Editing Challenge No. 2


Iron Bridge (from an original by Peter "Art Frames")

The original RAW looked skewed to me so I straightened it up. The actual processing was done in OV3 in two goes - the first to get maximum detail out of the trees and bridge and give a nice deep river reflection, and the second to do the path as the first set of changes gave an unwelcome hue to the cobles. The two images were then merged in photoshop, cropped, and the imaged widened on the right by judicious cloning to balance the bridge and bring it more to centre. The frame was added in ON1 effects.

A lot of good versions above.

A nice photo, the RAW just needs the colours and vibrance brought out..........
