Before addressing today's pic ("Life in the Shadows" 9-4-14 004v2a) I simply must say I don't know what got in to me yesterday. Because when I look at yesterday's post I think "Whuh!?" Can't figure just what I was so jazzed about in that pic. Can only figure the colors totally seduced me. Anyway, now I'm hesitant to say that I really like today's pic, "Life in the Shadows." Because even as I cleaned up a bit of too bright yellow in one place on it, I noticed some other things I'm not sure about. Shapes I can't do much about if I want to leave it realistic. And I do so like this scene as is. It was pretty much like this "live." All I did other than the usual cropping to proper dimensions, was to increase color contrast and saturation to emphasize those cool stripey shadows, and diffuse it to bring out the edges of shapes. I probably also then sharpened it a bit, as after diffuse a pic usually seems to need it.
