I chose this image because I really liked the structure of this photo. For instance, I like the middle "X" part. Also, the middle pole structure looks like a column and the white metal shelter looks like a ceiling as if I'm looking at the top from the bottom. For this assignment, the main idea was to enhance the background cityscape.
I used following three techniques.
- Curves adjustments: To enhance the background cityscape. I did most of the part except the plant box on the very bottom of the photo because it was too dark with it.
- Channel mixing: To enhance the orange light from the building and the lump in the plant box.
- Dodge and burn: To lighten the pole structure and some parts of the plant box.
