Hi, everyone! I'm Ariel from Austin/Dallas, TX.
For this project, I used some photos I took from my trip to Denver and Boulder, CO last summer.
For this first photo, I cropped it to shift the focus onto the people, added contrast, lowered highlights, then added graduated filter.
For this photo of my friends, I added lots of contrast, changed white balance to get rid of the overpowring blue/purple, added vignetting to make the faces pop.
