Thank you Loré Dombaj for sending us such a nice picture for One Photo Focus. Stop over at Snow’s Fissures and Fractures to see more from Loré.
I attempted to change the image to Black & White and then re-colorize the flower-pot plants but still don’t have enough knowledge in Lightroom to do that. Probably should have brought it into Photoshop and done that there.
Like most others I was in a time constraint and probably rushed too quickly. Mainly I cropped the photo so that the boy’s eyes were at the bottom third line level from rule of thirds. I concentrated mostly on lighting to bring the areas of the image up a bit but not wash out the boys forearm. I applied a few exposure changes plus white & black adjustments, added a beautiful sunlight 2 preset and finally a subtle vignette. The original image submitted by Loré Dombaj follows.
