Here is another way to edit a photo to bring out more detail from a flat looking scene. I enjoy riding in and photographing the Friendship boats which cruise Epcot’s World Showcase Lagoon.
In this first photo, the clouds are rather flat looking above the pavilions and the trees do not show a lot of definition. Earlier this year, I showed how to use Lightroom’s Graduated Filter. I used one again to add clarity and texture to the clouds. Next, I used a Brush tool to select only the trees.
You can see the mask (in white) from the brush over the trees in the screenshot. Once highlighted, I added some extra clarity to the masked area.
Here is the finished version.
I like how the slight edits brought a more 3-D look to the scene.
