Hidden Treasure

Friday is upon us and we are back to our regular ABF, where we edit our own images.

I have this passion for taking photos of strange things, like iron gates or street lamps, always looking around for some hidden treasure other people overlook. I found this little hidden gem in a park in Salzburg. The original looks so worn out, dirty and sad, that I had to play around and make it more like I remember it.

Really minimal effort here, just a touch here and there, a little bit of adjusting the exposure and saturation, a little bit of healing and brushing that lamp, slapping some Orton on it and that was it. Everything was done with the help of PicMonkey, my trusted sidekick. 🙂

Next week we are presenting our next One Photo Focus image for March, which happens to be my image. Be sure to check other participants in this craziness called AfterBeforeFriday on Stacy’s blog Visual Venturing.

So, that’s it on this week’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives!

  1. Great image here, Lore! I just love how you’ve brought out the pretty greens and made the colors pop. You use the Orton effect so well in most of the images I’ve seen by you, I keep trying to do an Orton effect (by hand with two layers like in a tutorial I saw) and it just never seems to work out for me. I must be choosing the wrong images (or I’m doing it wrong), you make it look so easy!
