Behind the curtain

Here are some before and after shots. Yes, my photos are somewhat ‘enhanced’. Don’t believe the internet, folks.

I see, point and shoot. Almost every photo is edited; color correction is the minimum. Also, I have this thing for dramatic skies.

Thought I was standing right in front of the palace. Didn’t translate well through the lens. So I tweaked the angles to make it as rectangular as possible. Add black and white, and lots of grey.
This only took some color correction and HDR simulation.
The warm light inside the tunnel didn’t come across on camera. Adjusted color levels, HDR magic, and tweaking perspective.
Again, a lot of dark greys – and a dramatic tilt of perspective.
