Challenge: Junque (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: Successful Challenge Entries
Camera: Apple iPhone 6
Date: Apr 19, 2016
Aperture: 2.2
ISO: 32
Shutter: 1/1900

LR: Increased clarity and lightened shadows to try to bring out some more details. Adjusted exposure, crop, and rotation.
Since this was an iphone shot I didn't get the shallow DOF that I though it needed. So I opened in PS - selected the foreground area and isolated it on a foreground layer. On the layer below, applied a gausian blur and masked it with a gradient mask so that the blurriest part remained in the distance. Cloned out spots I didn't like, dodged and burned to add impact of foreground. Nik output sharpener. Size / save for web.

This ribbon took me completely by surprise. I did actually put more time into this one than I have been on recent challenges. I knew I wanted to set something up near my work where things are somewhat abandoned ... Thanks for all the comments and votes =)

I loved this during voting, Tate.

I still do.

Thanks also for your notes.

I'm always disappointed when I go see a ribbon winner and ... they're not telling me anything about the image.

Doesn't make me want to comment on the image after they win.

But... I digress.

What a wonderful image! And... with a cellphone! Well done!
