One Photo Focus – November, Helen Chen

It’s One Photo Helen Chen OriginalFocus time again……..even though I will admit to being a touch under the pump (very busy for you non Aussies), I still managed to make some edits on this image. On the right is Helen Chen’s original, it sort of reminded me of old temples in Cambodia and Indonesia and such; where the jungle has reclaimed the buildings………..so that is where I let the image take me.

All processed in Photoshop;

  • added adjustment layers to darken the edges to create atmosphere
  • coloured overlays and additional shadows
  • added some grass, more vines, & cobwebs
  • additional textured overlays as well
  • Added a black layer over the top to bring it all together and then by using a mask I removed most of the black with a thick heavy brush
  • Then added a crooked frame for added interest and made a new background from some colours in the image.
