Looking beyond the shadows: before and after photos


lying on a bench before
Here is the before image.


I thought in keeping with the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge of beyond I would have a look at an image I took a while ago.

I liked the concept, but it never worked. The photo was taken in harsh light and was shadowy. In the shadows at the back was a man lying on a bench in the botanic gardens. The lines lead straight up to him, but the shadows were too dark.

I decided to look beyond the original image and edit it to make it work the best it could.

I don’t often show the before, but here it is in all its glory.

It isn’t perfect, but you can see him now!!
