AB Friday and Flower of the Day



The above is the original image.

First, I cropped and made some adjustments through the LR Basic.


Then, I move the photo to the Color EFex Pro 4 to make some enhancements through dynamic contracts; used the EFex Pro 2 to add Bokeh.

Back to LR, I added Vignette and adjusted the shadow a little. Voila!



Welcome back Stacy! Thanks to Stacy (VISUAL VENTURING) for making a series of step-by-step tutorial showing us how to use the Lightroom features, Color Efex Pro 4 and EFex Pro 2. Inspiring!

This is Stacy’s vision for her ABF. “After-Before Friday (ABF) posts provide an opportunity for photographers (amateur and seasoned, alike) to share their photos, and if they wish, their post-processing decisions. The photos will provide a fun “wow” factor; the post-processing descriptions, the “how.” The goal is to enjoy a behind-the-scenes look at others’ work while picking up helpful ideas along the way that each of us can use as we work with our own photos.” Click HERE to learn more.

This week you will get to see many fabulous AB photos. Emilio (Photos by Emilioand Ben (Aperture64are always there sharing their creative processes and “wow” photos. Take a look …

Happy to hear your feedback. Should I do differently?
