During our trip up the West Coast, we camped in the Oregon Dunes and spent one day at the beach where I took this photo. To kick it up a notch, I edited it in Photoshop Elements and played around with textures. I ended up with three different photo by changing the blending mode of just one added texture.
In the top picture I wanted to achieve a pink after-sunset mood:
"Dustyrose" by Kim Klassen, Saturation at 50%.
Then I played some more and came up with a completely different effect:
"Dustyrose" by Kim Klassen, Luminosity at 50%
After that I created a more wintery scene that reminds me of glaciers and a really cold bay:
"Dustyrose" by Kim Klassen, Exclusion 100%
No big changes in the "processing", but quite some different outcome.
Here's the original, rather boring photo, straight out of the camera:
Which one is your favorite?
