I had no particular idea where to go for this week’s One Four Challenge. I just played with the image, trying different things, pushing it as far as I could without going too far.
I love how this image gives me a “movie” vibe, from the original to both week 1 and 2.
What was my post-processing? Darn if I can remember…I started the same way, cropping and straightening…But I decided to change the colors, I was very curious to see if it would work. There were few dead-ends, but I finally settled on this greenish-gray version. I softened the clouds and got the idea of the fog. I know there is a way to add fog to the image, but I wanted to bring it from the original. So, I softened the clouds some more and lightened the image. My final touch was a touch of focal zoom, to give more movement to the clouds.
I have no idea if I succeed, but I like the final result. If last time I was expecting Thor, this week there could be Hulk lurking on that tower.
