I was visiting a farmer's market recently for the first time. Walking along, I happened upon this scene. The guitarist was taking a break, having some lunch. I looked down and thought "could anyone make this composition more perfect?" I immediately thought it might make a nice Topaz Tuesday subject.
So into Topaz Adjust 5.0 we go. I did this on a Photoshop layer. I knew Adjust would liven up the background and that wasn't what I was looking for, just emphasize the "years of experience" on the guitar. This time I didn't use a preset, I just worked with the sliders visually to achieve the look I wanted, being careful not to "overdo" it.
Back in Photoshop, I used a layer mask and painted in the original background. As always, the original is available on the Continue link below. As is a comment area, which are free today, so have at it.
