After-Before Friday is a forum hosted by Stacy Fischer on her blog Visual Venturing where every Friday few of us try to explain post-processing and showcase original and processed images. If you are interested in joining us, you can find all the details on her blog.
Last couple of weeks I post-processed the images that were of poor quality, because I wanted to see how much I can improve the images I usually discard. This week I wanted to pick a photo that at first glance I thought didn’t need any post-processing. I was curious to see where it would lead me, trying not to go too far.
Post-processing was done in PicMonkey and all I did was darken it a little bit, especially on the edges, to get those petals and the bee to pop-up more. I also marginally increased the color temperature and the shadows. And that was it, very simple work.
