A Horse of Many Colors

I went out and took some photos yesterday. It was a gray and sort of monochromatic day, but I wanted a few new photos to work with.

This is the original image:

I used RAW Therapee to do this crop and black and white.

I used RAW Therapee to do this too. It was an unexpected result, and not one I would normally keep, but I figured it was interesting enough to show.

I’m not sure how long I’ll continue to play around with post processing my photos, but I’m enjoying the learning process.

      Thanks, Frauke. I’m starting to get comfortable with RAW Therapee, though there are some things I am more familiar with in PhotoShop. I really like that RAW Therapee is non-destructive. 😃. Thanks again for pointing me to it.

        That s why I like it so much (non-destructive) 🙂 I don’t have much experience with PhotoShop. I think it s great to create the perfect advertising, but many people use it way too much 😉

          PhotoShop, like everything else Adobe makes, is also ludicrously expensive, bloated, and slow.

          I agree… Too many photos are over processed. I think if the photo isn’t good from the get go, no amount of editing can change that.
