Neodigital Art–Update Nine
The photograph above is ‘before’ I altered it and the ‘after’ photo is below. I’ve used a picture of this bridge before and this isn’t a great photograph. You can see the river in the original picture and the small bridge it goes under and the bigger bridge that carries the aqueduct and canal over the top. The photo looks a little washed out with the bright sunshine and so I increased the contrast.
I also changed the colour a little and made it ‘warmer’ – in windows live photo gallery you can add blue to make it cooler or more reds to make it warmer. In the second picture you can see the bridges are redder and look better. To show the subject better and to get the photographs to fit the blog better. I’ve cropped the photograph, slightly from the top and a lot from the bottom. This makes the bridges more prominent, but you can’t see the river. The river isn’t the main focus of the picture and so we haven’t lost too much!
I’ll try to take a photograph with the express purpose a ‘for’ and ‘after’ with a tutorial for next time. The next photograph is a bridge just over the field and I used a photograph of this bridge last week; this is a different angle. This was taken by Simon James, just before we crossed the bridge. The photograph received a similar treatment; the colour was changed slightly and it was cropped to the bridge.
The river was on the right of that bridge and when it floods it goes under the bridge and into a ditch to the left of the bridge and the field probably acts as a flood plain. The next picture is boring but the effects of altering the colours is interesting. All we have is water and sky but changing the colours a little, brought out the sun coming through the clouds. That can be quite spectacular if you alter the histogram.
I hope you liked today’s pictures. There will be more heading up the blogs and more Neodigital Art next week. Yesterday, I went Oriental with Chinese Ambitions, following Monday’s blog – what would you do? When I asked what you would do if you were running your country.
