New Tricks on an Old Photo

Since I get two entries for the This Week in Photo landscape contest, I decided to submit this along with my other entry. I felt that the original needed a bit of retouching to really competitive though. This photo below is the new piece that will be submitted to the contest.

Swiss mountain retouch

Mountain before and afterIf you enlarge the before-and-after image at right, you can compare the two photos. There wasn’t really anything too major done. I just increased the contrast, nudged up the saturation, brought the shadows on the mountains in the background down a bit, and cropped the clouds out of the top. I think that these minor changes came together to produce a much stronger photo overall.
