Assignment 101 – Jackson Pipkins

First I adjusted the levels of the image in order to exaggerate the shadows. Next I adjusted the curve to further this effect.I adjusted the color levels in order to make the green in the trees "pop" further. I then used the Dodge and Burn tools to brighten anywhere that was too dark and darken any areas that were too light as well as to accentuate the detail in the rocks and ducks. I applied a grunge filter to make the sky a bit more interesting and focus the attention toward the center of the photo. Finally I adjusted the photo to 14x8in. The end product is a deeply colored and dramatic shot at water level showing a fairly mundane scene.
