Another “Cool Photo” Entry!

This entry comes from Laurence Kim, a great shooter in the Seattle area.  He has provided us with a before and after for comparison. 

This photo was taken at the Ibeza bar, right next to the Smith Tower in
downtown Seattle.  I saw these cool curtains leading up to the entrance of
the bar and just knew I wanted to take a shot there.  I found one of the
little flower girls and asked her to run down the little corridor made by
these curtains.  So it wasn’t really photojournalism – more like
fauxjournalism.

Anyway, first I converted to b&w using lightroom. I made a split tone b&w
with a warm tone right in Lightroom.  Then using a combination of cloning
and dodging I made the window at the end of the tunnel pure white, giving
it an ethereal look.  Finally, I sharpened using Kevin kubota’s Magic
Sharp action, which is far and a way the best sharpening method I’ve ever
come across!

I love photography, my family, and owning my own business. I am going to mix them up and see what I get!
