I took this photo last summer in Hawaii. I’ve always wanted to finish it, but held off for various reasons. Publishing it just in time for the end of work Friday (or the beginning of the weekend for many of you) seemed like a perfect way to show it off. I did not do many changes to the original here, just a trip through Topaz Adjust in Photoshop to deepen the shadows (contrast changes helped there too) and lighten the water colors. I also removed some distracting yellowish tones from the rocks and chairs. Overall a photo that makes me go “AHHHHHH.”
See more of my work at http://www.kelleybard.com, or on flickr or facebook (links to all on the side of my blog).
This weekend is the random, big deal for the month… see my posting from last night. And next week I promise to put together a review of OnOne software’s PhotoTools Pro 2.6, which has been a fun experiment all month.
Enjoy your weekend! And enjoy the art that is out there!
