RELIC / iPhone 6s Plus / Snapseed / PhotoForge 2 / Photone
I've been playing again. I grabbed a quick snapshot while driving past this old wagon, recently, and tonight, while the tv was blathering, I decided to have some fun. First, the snapshot:
Which I cropped to get rid of unwanted elements, mainly my rear view mirror.
I dropped it into Snapseed and started to play. I cropped it further to get a composition I liked, and began pushing the colors and adjusting values; sharpened it a bit. Almost stopped here.
Tried a tighter crop, but decided I liked the more open version better.
I went back and started really pushing colors around, toying with various tools, going for extremes.
More playing, pushing, pumping the colors. Really liked this one. Decided maybe I shoulld try a black and white version, just to be sure.
Oh, yeah. Liked this one. Couldn't leave it alone, though.
Gave in to temptation and started messing with filters until I found this effect after switching to PhotoForge 2.
Then I moved into a new, to me, at least app called Photone and gave it this sort of gold tone effect. Hmmm, pretty nice, no? Still not satisfied, I decided to take it back into my old pal PhotoForge 2, push it around a little bit more, and add a border.
I showed all the various iterations to Thea, and she picked the one you see at the top of the page. Obviously, I agreed. Which do you like best?
