Beyond the Brush

I’m joining Robyn’s One Four Challenge this month – one photograph processed four different ways over the month.

This time I tried to change the time of day.  In Photoscape I used the linear gradient feature several times, to the top and to the bottom, layering until I got something approaching what I wanted.  In Sagelight I added HDR, adjusted the vibrancy and added a tint to tone and add variation to the yellow.  I tried various other things, none of which I was pleased with; this was the best I could come up with considering what I was attempting to do.  BUT, I did learn some new things during this whole exercise, which is what it’s all about, right?    Check the poll at the bottom of the post – I’d be interested in your response.
