Photography 101: Triumphs

Photography 101: Triumph

“Today, let’s bump up the contrast for a bold take on triumph.”

It was a challenge to come up with strong images that fit the topic. I took a photo back in June of this bold, but oddly out of place, triumphal arch. It just leads to a dingy corner behind a side road in a small town. I added lots of contrast in GIMP but I also had to lighten and reduce saturation to save some detail.

Truimphal Arch Hi Contrast

This is a triumph. Presents wrapped and cards written well before Christmas. Again I ramped up the contrast in stages while lightening, brightening and de-saturating.
