holy crap. some of the changes are super drastic.
Before Before Before Before Before After After After After After After
Just me 2 cents
Canon 60D | And Legs as Lens to cover every single focal length i ever needs.
you guys are fantastic!
can i request the photos to be posted with some guidelines as to what was changed to get the desired effect?
this will help noobs like me to try figure things in photoshop instead of aimless and gawking at the post-processed
for this particular pic, i did the following...
1) tighter crop
2) applied 2 graduated filters of -0.2 & -0.5 diagonally
4) exposure -0.4, fill-light +15 & black +10
5) tone curves -15 to darks & shadows
6) contrast +70, vibrance +10 & saturation -5
*yes, the hair is abit "messi", i know...

This is a very interesting thread to read :P
The isolation is achieved and more impactful than the initial original clutter
But it also leaves one to ponder if it is anymore of a photograph left.
