Nobody in the Park! :: Before and After

Here is a little before and after fun for a shoot I did in Boston a few weeks back.  The couple had a vision of sitting on that bench, looking out toward the water so we made it happen.  I wasn’t overly enthused with the number of people all around, but knowing this could very well be a great photograph to blow up and hang on their wall, I figured it was worth taking out the things I felt made it “less than perfect”

Here’s the original straight from the camera.

Some of the things I knew right away I wanted to get rid of.

Here is the after.  In color, however it didn’t WOW me, so I took it one step further.

Here’s the finished product.  I also cropped it so that there was less dead space to the right of the photo.

Hope you like it!

I am IMPRESSED. You should do a PUG talk on this sort of editing.
