This weeks One Photo Focus features an image taken by me of the BT Tower covered in fog. It isn’t often we get fog during the day, so I was glad I had my camera with me that day. My aim for the photograph was to enhance the fog in the photograph.
I initially opened the photograph in Adobe Camera Raw. The below are the default settings.
To give it a more blue tone to enhance the fog I changed the white balance settings:
With regard to the rest of the settings:
Using the Topaz Labs Filter and selecting Topaz Clarity.
I added the Desaturated Grunge I Preset on the default settings.
I wanted to add a bit more texture with this filter but not give it an overtly harsh processed look so I copied the image, removed the Topaz Clarity and pasted the image on top. Another way to do this would be to duplicate the background image and apply the filter on the duplicated layer.
I set the opacity to 36%.
I added the Cooling Filter (82) under the Photo Filter Adjustment at opacity 82%.
After a final crop in order to place the BT Tower at the center of focus.
Here is the final image:
