THE PICTURE OF THE DAY – APRIL 22, 2012
by Tim Devine
For this image of The Haunted Mansion, I started out with a wide-angle photograph of the ‘Mansion from front and center in the queue line. I then applied some distortion correction using Photoshop’s Lens Correction filter then used the distort function of the transform tool to stretch the ‘Mansion taller. Correcting the converging verticals made it look wide and squat, and by pulling out the roof and lower portion of the image, it becomes a bit more proportionate, and (dare I say)…ominous?
Here is the original image, so you can have a comparison of what I did with this image…
Post Processing: Adobe Photoshop CS5 Raw Conversion, Custom Topaz Adjust Blend, with contrast enhancement and vignette
