Four One Challenge: This challenge is about processing one image four ways over four weeks.
In this week’s version of my image, I wanted to have a high contrast black and white scene, to highlight the architecture and background. I decided to include a pop of color with the yellow cabs.
Version 2 – Pop of Color:
Editing of Version 2 was done in Aperture. Exposure was bumped up a little, Recovery was taken all the way to 1.5 (max setting), and Black Point was decreased slightly. I applied the B&W filter at the mid contrast level (grade 2). I erased the B&W filter to show the yellow cabs. Finally, I applied the Intensify Contrast brush to the buildings on the right. The image is uncropped.
Version I – Vibrant Scene:
