A simple tree - experimenting with editing styles!
ORIGINAL (No edits)
EDIT ONE For this edit my goal was to add drama to the scene. I did this by greatly increasing the contrast in the tone curve, as well as darkening certain parts of the photo using graduated filters. I also slightly brightened the sky. Lastly, I added color depth using the Split Toning tool, resulting in a warmer and moodier photo.
EDIT TWO For this edit, I wanted to really play with the colors. I used the color calibration sliders to get this orange & teal look (like the lesson in this course shows). I also darkened the image to once again increase drama.
EDIT THREE For the last edit, my goal was something more minimal. For this, I used one of my more subtle Lightroom presets, resulting in a softer and more desaturated look that is easier on the eyes.
