Charlie and Seed

Charlie and Seed

Charlie looking at the Seed sculpture, in The Core building at the Eden Project.

This one took a surprising amount of processing. I wanted to bring out the texture in the Seed, to make it stand out, but anything that did that also made Charlie look worse. I masked out the left side of the image, tidying up the edge with the Perfect Brush, then applied most of the filters to just the Seed. I then applied another filter or two to Charlie by copying the mask and inverting it.

The walkway leading to the entrance to the Eden Project.

I used the Dramatic Light filter in onOne Perfect B&W for most of the image, but used Perfect Layers to mask out the woman’s head, and applied a bit of extra detail and desaturation to her hair in the Enhance module.
