Playing With Photoshop

Here is an image I posted last week, but this time, after manipulating it in Photoshop Elements:

What I did:

  1. Adjusted the perspective to remove most of the “tilting” of the block wall and the houses in the background.
  2. Removed the palm tree in the background.
  3. Changed the texture of the image using the Watercolor filter. (Click on the image to enlarge it and see more of the “watercolor” effect.)
  4. Brightened the overall image.
  5. Deepened the color saturation.
  6. Added posterized edges.

I like this version much more than the original, despite the original being more “photo-realistic”, this version does a much better job conveying what I was trying to depict in my image.
