August – One Photo Focus Challenge

It’s time for August’s One Photo Focus Photo Challenge. One Photo Focus is a photography challenge hosted by Stacy Fischer at Visual Venturing. The participants in this challenge edit the same image and share it on the One Photo Focus Forum. You can get more information and join the One Photo Focus monthly challenge at Stacy Fisher’s Visual Venturing. Thanks to Robin Kent for letting us practice on the original photo.

My Process

My goal was to make the day seem less stormy and gray while placing more emphasis on the London Eye. First, I simplified the photo by cropping it to focus more on the London Eye.  Next, I removed the deck or work area in front of the white boat with Snapheal.  Then, I applied two layers in Aurora HDR Pro.  The first layer was Architecture Bright followed by Landscape Light and Airy.  Finally, I tweaked the color a little in the Fotor App.
