Assignment 101 – Esteban Ramirez

Original Image⬆️

Modified Image⬆️

The first thing I did to the image was a clockwise rotation by a few degrees to get the horizon to be more level. The next thing I did was a simple crop to get rid of the rocky/grassy foreground and to get the horizon on the bottom third of the pace instead of the middle. After that, I did a small levels adjustment to lighten up the image, followed up with a small s-curve adjustment. Continuing on I did a "POP" adjustment layer to bring out the colors of the sky and trees a little more. Finally, I performed some dodge and burn operations through the image. I did some dodging on the most forefront ridge in the lower-left corner of the image. I then burned the farthest ridge on the left because it was a little too light, and I burned the bottom of the clouds in order to dive more depth and dimension to the sky.

  1. The sky was already so blue and beautiful in the original picture. After you edited it, the clouds stand out from the blue sky. It became even more gorgeous.
