About the Image(s)

This was from a slide taken in N Mexico some time ago. The first thing was to flip the image horizontally which to my mind improved it from the start. I liked the colour of the dog matching the environment and his forlorn look typified the scene. Using Levels I deepened the sky a little and brought up the greenery in the BG and the building. I am sure there are more sophisticated ways to do this but using CS6 Levels always works best for me. Finished with High Pass and a complementary border.

I like the image better, as you do, flipped horizontally. The dog does blend well with the road and building. I do prefer the dog with a little less contrast as in the original image. The image has a good story to tell. Well done.   Posted: 08/01/2020 09:14:14

Great mood of hard life. The warm tone blends the pueblo, the dog and the dirt path which leads toward the mountains.
Would clone out the debris remaining from the slide scan.   Posted: 08/01/2020 11:05:42

Is that slide debris on the side of the house at the LH side? I though it was part of the neglect of the house.   Posted: 08/01/2020 13:32:20

There are at least two on the house I think (one to the left of the door and the other to the right of the window adjacent to the door as well as other black dots on the house) and others in the sky and over the mountain. Once you start looking they tend to pop up everywhere. They are always a real headache for me in scanning my slides. It is a great photo though!!   Posted: 08/02/2020 10:06:15
