Lightroom Expriments: Tunnel

Before and after shot of what I’ve been working on recently. No actual Photoshop was used – just adjustment brush layers in LR. I tried to be thorough with reflections like the edges of the tunnel and elbows/knee of the soldier.

The “tunnel” is really the hollow part of the bottom of a wall-topper, where the cement binds. Said cement is the crumbled debris around the tunnel along with some “burning” moss.

Day 2: Eve.

Two days before an exam I decided to forget all about biology and relax with some weed…s… Lots of weeds in our little garden but the flowers and bulbs were too beautiful to get rid of.
The next few posts are the fruit of this “productive” evening.
