Gatehouse- Friendly Friday Photography Challenge – Photo Edits

This week the friendly Friday photography challenge is:

This week on Friendly Friday your topic is ‘photo edits’. . . Join in the fun, this week, on Friendly Friday. You are limited only by your imagination

We most of you probably realise that the photos that reach here never do so without some form of editing, I shoot primarily RAW files, but occasionally jpeg for certain situations where I want the camera to do the editing.

Therefore every photo is edited to some degree, but I see this as akin to stepping into the darkroom to develop the film, and photo!  It is just these days I have far more control and if more than simple ‘development’ is required, it is now far easier an quicker.

So choosing a recent photo here is the undeveloped RAW photo:

Here is a basic edit, something like what would have come out of the camera if I had shot in jpeg.

And then below a bare minimum of how I would edit, cropped, straightened, and a small amount of processing. This would be the least work a photo would have before it reached the blog or my photo albums.

If I liked the photo it would end up with a little more tinkering. A new sky maybe, some of the saturation taken out, a little more texture.

But then of course if I go this far why stop! A little glow, some post Bi-filtering, and overlay, get rid of the figure in the archway.

Maybe even pop it on the study wall to look at!

Or maybe have a further tinker and even use it for another blog post – so here is one – Altered way
