I didn’t do a great deal of editing to Robin’s already great image. In Lightroom, the image was sharpened and a few changes made to exposure. I tried to bring down the yellow cast in the building and did so a bit. Mostly I cropped the image and removed the people from the foreground grassy area. In Photoshop the blue in the sky was increased using a mask so that the building and grass were not changed. Also, the burn tool was used to deepen the color of the grassy area.

  1. Love the bright, blue sky and the more saturated look, Karen! I also like the more focused crop. You talk about using a mask to adjust just the sky – I need to understand how to do that because I think that’s ultimately what I ended up doing to turn the Capitol black and white in mine, but I just can’t remember how to do it. So much to learn, so little time … Thanks for playing along this month!

    1. The mask is done in Photoshop. When I have my internet back up I’ll try to show the steps. It’s a layer placed on top where the blues were bumped up and on the mask part everything but the sky is hidden using a black paintbrush. You could also do a select everything except the sky and paint bucket with black. Hope this makes sense.
