This is my first entry in the Neoxian City Photo Challenge.
Recently I acquired some NEOXAG to help curate the Neoxian City Community and popped in the discord to say hello to everyone.
I ended up winning a raffle, and felt instant jubilation as emoji sensory overload flooded my senses, and everyone was so kind and welcoming.
I later checked out the announcements and noticed the Photo challenge. (Details and rules in the post)
This isn't the first time I've seen this photo challenge, but I told everyone I'm trying to step up my Steem game and mingle with the community more. I like to keep my word, and so I felt this challenge is the perfect opportunity to show everyone the magnitude of futuremind's skillz, and hey.. I love photography anyway, so this is pretty awesome!
Enough talk, here is what I produced:
I wanted to snazz it up a bit because my Samsung WB100 was purchased from a pawn shop, and I later realized it had some issues with graininess and focus. It's still decent enough, and I'm pleased with the final result.
Let's take a look at the process shall we? I utilized the standard Windows 10 photo viewer filter/enhancement effects.
I increased the clarity a little, and added a slight vignette. The vignette is barely noticeable, but it makes a difference and is noticeable if taken away.
I played around with all the different filters, and ended up deciding on "vanilla" as the effect, with a slight photo enhance and 40% filter effect.
And that is the entire process!
Here is the original with no effects. Which one do you like better?
And lastly, here is proof of the camera used for the photo:
I love the Rule of Thirds and generally employ its use with most photos I take.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you all enjoyed my entry for the
NEOXIAN CITY PHOTO CHALLENGE
Have a wonderful day!
