Suzie Tremmel Student Picture Edits Education Example

Suzie Tremmel said she would like my advice on her recent picture she posted on my Facebook Student Page. Below is her original image and then my suggested image. A couple things about my suggestions first. I was working from a very small JPEG so quality is lost especially in the sky. I also left the spot in the sky area of the water to show what dust on the sensor can do in an image. I teach how to see dust on the sensor and cleaning in my Intermediate class.
First, I cropped off some of the rocks/gravel on the right. There's just to much of it in the image. It makes it look like an unnatural road. It also keeps my eye from appreciating the leading lines and details of the mountains. My eye hangs on the rock area which isn't the most interesting part. I enhanced the lines and color a bit to make the picture pop a bit more. I increased the blue reflection a bit to reflect the blue sky more and balance out the sky color. I worked to also bring out the various different shades of green in the trees and land. I brightened the mountain rock to make it feel more like the morning/evening sun caressing the earth. I also dropped the horizon line a little bit out of the center. This was a quick edit. Could have done a little more with a full res. image.
These are some of the things I teach in my Lightroom, Fine Art and Photoshop classes. I hope this helps!
