This was taken last May on the same trip that I proposed to my girlfriend. Everybody else was taking photos of the ocean so I turned around and saw this lovely image. I’d like to think it captures the feeling of being there better than one of just the cool rocks and the ocean. Despite being a little tipsy having just come from a 9 shot whisky tasting, I think the photo actually turned out pretty well.
In this installment, I’ll show the big and small changes necessary to upgrade this photo. It’s got your normal adjustments as well as some gradients and brushes.
This is one of the first photos I’ve retouched from our trip to the UK about a week ago. This is the sunken garden at Kensington Palace, which is where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge live. My girlfriend is a huge fan of British royalty and was a European History major in college so I took her to London to propose. I shot this photo the day before as I was scouting out the right location to do it. I ended up proposing (just after afternoon tea) on the other side of the fountain, closer to the palace. And yes, she did say yes!
And we’re back for another Photo Friday. Sorry there hasn’t be much activity on the blog lately. I’ve been busy with trying to graduate by August and proposing! But here’s the photo.
