Lost In A Book
I will admit this is an “experimental” edit. There are lots of layers and masks going on. I wanted the girl to be the focus of the image and it was difficult with all the other things going on in the image. Part of the problem was I had a tiny shooting window because I didn’t want her to look up while I was taking the photo so I didn’t have time to really get my focal length right. So I worked with what I had.
I know it looks like I used a vignette in the image I didn’t. It was a mask and then burning down the shadows. Then I loaded a layer mask to do a dreamy focus to soften the buildings around it and then masked it in to keep her more in focus.
While its not a technically perfect image I like it and sometimes you just post an image you like.
