Aug 29 - HNC - Photo Manipulation
I scanned and worked on this photo the other day, it is of Lanikai Beach, Ohau, Hawaii. I took it I think early in the morning and the lighting in the photo is not very good on the original. After scanning it was worlds worse with lines appearing in a few places and mostly looking like a shades of gray picture. I added a bunch of photo filters and masks to bring out the aqua in the water that really was there and the color, light and dimension of the clouds and sun rays. Holding the original next to the computer there is a definite resemblance and it is about as close as I can get to it. Looks like I'll have to go back one day and take a few more photos!
Lanikai Beach translates to Heavenly Beach in Hawaiian. It was my first day there and I walked the beach alone that day really feeling like I was at a very special place.
