How the winning photo of the October open theme contest was made
By ADestroyer in Photo Contests on Dec 6, 2019
I would like to thank everyone who voted for my photograph and I apreciate your support. I am an amateur photographer so I was really surprised to get such a positive feedback.
Touch of Magic
An unexpected touch of magic came along during the post processing when I realized that it can be treated as adventure with colors. Still I don't spend a lot of time on it but always try to get satisfactory results, simply put I am trying not to stress but to enjoy it.
I think the photography should be about the "sweet" process of creating the photograpgh not about the post processing work.
That is why when I work in the field I always pay attention to the quality of light, sharpness and framing the object to get the shot the way so I do not need a lot corrections, just a little bit of color adjusting or special effects.
But sometimes it doesn't work the expected way and the shot does not turn out as desired like for example the "Almost September" where you in the original photo can see the LED lamp on the left hand side, lighting the Berberys bush (Berberys thunberga amiration). My photograph needed a lot of work to fix it.
