Let’s Edit is a weekly(ish) series here on Phogropathy where I take you through my Lightroom editing workflow on various photographs of mine. Some weeks feature specific tips, while others like this week, focus on simply having some fun and seeing what I can create.
Lightroom Editing Workflow – Over the Top Tips
This week’s photo is one of my favorite captures from my trip to Italy late last year. It was taken atop an overlooking park which allowed me to get to the vantage point of this main road through Bologna, Italy.
The photograph was originally a little under-exposed and I did this somewhat by intention in order to preserve as much detail in the sky as I could. It was just after sunset, so it was dark out, but there were still hints of color left in the sky which I wanted to capture in the photo.
The process for today’s photo might be a little over the top for some, but it’s always fun to see where things will lead. I do find that this kind of photograph – buildings and lots of colors – works well for going over-the-top and that’s the main reason for the choice here. Hope you enjoy the edit!
