About the Image(s)

Original Image: Untouched photo. The architect designed the roof protecting folks waiting in bad weather from rain and snow. The Belmont neighborhood has a high population of Native Americans.

Final Image: My final rendition was created using Snapseed to remove some of the color to emphasize the 5 feathers. I used the black and white tool which turned the entire photo into B/W. I locked this step in by clicking the check mark. Then I clicked the layers with the circular arrow. The next window on the bottom you click view edits. I opened the layer and clicked on the paintbrush and painted just where I wanted B/N white. Then saved as a copy. Opened Retouch and used the clone tool to remove a blue area on the left side of the roof. I would appreciate your comments and ideas.

Nice creative edits make this an even more interesting image. The BW portion almost looks like a pen drawing, and the blue adds interest. Nicely seen and edited. I can't make any suggestions for changes.   Posted: 10/02/2019 12:02:37

Your edits really make the feathers pop. And your explanation of Snapseed was wonderful and beyond my use of that app. Great ideas for all of us there.   Posted: 10/02/2019 13:26:53

Nicely done. A very unique image. The people roaming around adds the photojournalism effect.   Posted: 10/05/2019 19:19:15

My initial impression was that this was a comic book image. Very creative. Balancing the color and B&W portions somehow emphasizes both and forces attention to the people as well as the feathers.

Your edits changed photo in very dramatic way making an interesting photo intriguing. Putting lower half of photo in b/w made it less busy and moved viewers focus to intriguing lines and shape of blue roof . Well thought out and executed.   Posted: 10/16/2019 16:20:37
