Before and After Photograph Challenge – June 2019

Bren’s Before and After Photograph Challenge June 2019
Sue’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Edit

Bren supplies a photo for us to play with and edit as we see fit. I did so many changes and didn’t write down what I did to one photo and the other mainly altered the photo to black and white.

Sue wants to know if we edit our photos before inserting into a post. Sometimes I do but mainly when converting to black and white. Some photos do get cropped to get a better view of the subject or to remove an element that distracts or isn’t part of the image I had in mind.

Here is a combination of both photo challenges. The program I use is Corel PaintShop Pro Ultimate 2019

The original photo supplied by Bren of Old Scotney Castle

This is my first edit. Convert to black and white, increase the black, reduce the overall brightness, increase contrast and add a vignette

My second edit. I removed some elements. Can you guess? From then on I just started to look at the effects. I used one called Time Machine which changed the photo to around the 1900’s look, applied selective focus, a bit of colour enhancement and increased the black.
