    Default Tokyo's Forsaken

    This photo was taken somewhere in Tokyo, Japan by my friend. The photo din't show the busy and happening life in Tokyo, just like a forsaken place in Tokyo.

    The original photo was not well taken as the photo was took in the rush. Hence I did some ps color adjustment on it.

    Original photo:

    Thank Eyesthruthelens, tangoninazero and jo3pit for reply.

    jo3pit,
    For me, of coz if can take a nice photo without touch up is the best.
    I only do ps only on case by case basis...

    tangoninazero,
    yup I add in the flare, is under Filter -> Render -> Len Flare.

    Eyesthruthelens,
    1st, I use Curve to make the entire photo brighter.
    Image -> Adjusments -> Curve

    2nd, I sharpen the photo
    Filter -> Sharpen -> Sharpen

    3rd, I adjusted the color, to make the atmosphere like old, classic and lonely feeling.
    Image -> Adjustments -> Color Balance
    The Color level was 20, 0, -20

    Finally, I added the lens flare, to "create" the evening sun light effect, indicate that this photo showing old people...
    Filter -> Render -> Lens Flare

    Well composed shot, try to lose the flare though. PS lens flares look very unnatural and the colour doesn't go with your overall theme.

    People usually AVOID flares. If you really want a flare, shoot an object that is just barely covering the tip of the sun in the evening/morning.
