Dramatic Changes: Before and After Train Station Photography With Photoshop
Photoshop allows me to digitally paint my images look like you’re viewing them through a pair of polarized sunglasses: certainly my favorite way to view the day.
Taken on a cold and rainy March afternoon, this is the view down the tracks of the Campbell light rail train in the San Francisco South Bay region of California.
Armed only with my point and shoot, I couldn’t possibly capture the powerful colors I saw through my polarized shades. So I took what I could get and gave it a Photoshop makeover later.
Below are the adjustment layers I used to transform a muted photo into the vibrant memory I have of these train tracks cutting through the city of Campbell, California. No HDR or tone mapping needed, though I did get a boost from a magic filter called Topaz Adjust!
