I have some really bad habits when taking
pictures that I need to break.
I don't take the time to assess the light.
Thus, blown out skies.
I know what to do but I'm bad at doing it.
So here are some examples of photos I took that really needed some work to make them look decent.
This is a street in Old San Juan.
If I hadn't blown out the sky it would be a really cool shot.
I cropped the bottom to take it farther away from me and sharpened.
I lowered the highlights to get as much as I could out the top of this shot.
Another shot in old San Juan. this one is not blown out as bad but I had to lower the highlights and shadows
I pulled up the contrast a little bit and color saturation.
Also I cropped the sides off to give it more depth.
This is in Ireland
On this one I really went overboard with the highlights and color saturation on purpose.
I like the effect.
A little cropping and enhancing of color here.
This one was a little blurry so I really had to sharpen a lot.
This is Kenmare in Southwest Ireland.
This shot was taken in Dublin
A true Street Scene
