Nice image, but a little too bright. I've also cropped the image, as it's the couple you are trying to concentrate on, not everything else going on to the left. With the crop, the image concentrates on the couple, rather than the eye wandering off to other parts. I made some adjustment in Photoshop, with a levels adjustment and brightness and contrast, which I feel brings the image out a little better. Hope you like it.

Hi,

There's a couple of simple adjustments that could be done to alter the image slightly as it appears a little soft.

If you look at the side of the building on the left you will see the image need a slight rotation to the right to level. Then for my eye's the midtones need adjusting, this is easily by goinig to "Levels" and moving the middle pointer to the right untill you get it right for your eye.

Good image of Maine Lighouse in your pf.

Take care
Martin

Youve captured a nice moment here. They could also be heading off to that Motel too!


The mono is a good approach, though does appear a little bright and low in contrast. Might have been due to the conversion process perhaps?

The shot is a little tilted judging from the siding, so a little straightening is done in the mod. Theres a lot of width that can be cropped, especially from the left.


Ive loaded two mods, both cropped and straightened, the first is a straight mono with highlights toned down; the second is a duo toned version which I think suits this.



Hope this helps,



Regards



Willie
