It is time for September’s After-Before (One Photo Focus) from Visual Venturing. Here is my post processed version of Stacy’s ship image taken in San Francisco, CA:
For this month’s ABF, I first applied a “transfer” filter to the image. I then added some layers of water to give us a bit more water in the foreground. I wanted to add in scuba divers again this month, but the underwater divers seemed out of place and so I changed the divers to have them coming up for air. It seemed to work. I added in a distant moon on the horizon and left the darker tone in the moon to maybe work with the tone in the verticals on the ship. I also like the triangle shape in the water foreground and feel like it works with the distant shapes in the Golden Gate Bridge and the shapes in the ship’s mast area.

Here are the scrapped versions:
This version was getting closer to my final, but the moon was a bit too big…
This version now had the right dock (walking path), but the scuba divers felt wrong)- and I wanted to add a moon (for our pet Cody, RIP April 2016).
This version had an experimental pier – or walking path. I liked the gritty feel – but then didn’t…. I also knew I needed to change the scuba divers and maybe bring them above the surface.
In this version – my first attempt – not sure what the heck I was thinking…. lol –
And check out the comics below for a bit of humor today.
I especially like this one on perspective:
Have a great weekend.
