I’ve decided to start a new series called “What’s your fancy?” In this series, I’ll post the same picture with different post shot editing and let you decide which is your favorite. The following picture is a traditional fair scene in the United States.
I took this shot with my Nikon D3100 and the normal standard lens. I used a five second shutter. The longer shutter allows the ferris wheel to have a solid color look and creates a trail for anything that moves. I didn’t have my tripod so I found a solid surface and placed the camera on a timer.
Post shot editing.
The editing was a two step process. In the first part, I used Photoshop to enhance the color and the lighting. I usually just take advantage of the programs auto fixes. In the second phase, I used a program called FX Photo Studio to strip color and leave only one specific color. (Except for the original shot.)
So what’s your fancy?
