Color grading

Color grading - student project

Hi Jon, thank you so much for this class! I  always loved color graded pictures and wanted to try this effect myself but never knew how to use it until today Really enjoyed it although I must admit I need to play more with curves to understand this method better, but I already tried all three methods and they compliment my photos pretty well. Here's the most dramatic example, I used Gradient map and Curves.
