Tuscan Grapes


Bonnie asked for this week's Photo Art Friday that we show an edited photo that has been sitting around in our archives and never got any attention. For this, I chose the photo above - and I have no idea how I edited it because at that time (a couple years ago) I never wrote down the recipe. Since the original photo is a slide that I had scanned I suspect that I edited it in Lightroom.

Nevertheless, when I found this edited photo I couldn't resist to tweak it a little bit more, this time using PSE. I added the word, played around with levels and hue/saturation, and then added one of Bonnie's textures "notes to myself", blending mode linear burn at 57%.


This was the original photo, SOOC:


The photo was taken in Tuscany, near the medieval town of San Gimignano.

I'm partial to anything from Tuscany, but this is a special photo, Carola! The light is beautiful, and your processing makes it even more lovely. Well done!

Oh die Weintrauben mit der Texture sind wunderschön geworden. Und in San Gimigniano war ich auch schon.
Vielen Dank für Deinen lieben Kommentar. Leipzig ist immer einen Besuch wert und der Palmengarten sowieso. Er ist nicht sehr groß, aber sehr schön. Vielleicht solltest Du den Frühling oder Sommer für einen Besuch einplanen. Momentan hängt nicht mehr viel an den Bäumen...

Viele liebe Grüße Synnöve

Great changes - I love how the bokeh in the original shot became painterly in the adjusted photo. AND I love the richer colors!

Wonderful edits. It's fascinating how we can achieve so many looks with one image.
