While I am indeed a great fan of posting photos straight out of the phone, right after clicking, without any editing or filters, some situations and clicks demand it. 

For instance, here is a click I captured while I was shooting a video on my Note 10 Plus (yes you can do those things simultaneously on your Galaxy phone!). And fun fact, I was shooting a hyperlapse, so I did not have control over the zoom, the aperture or the focus.

As you can see, it's a GIF that was exported from the motion photo that was captured. It was quite a jerky ride, and despite being captured during a video recording the photo did turn out pretty clear. Kudos Note 10 Plus!

But for me, that photo doesn't emote well. It needs intensity and it needs framing.

So, that's what I did.

- Cropped in a little closer to frame the walkway that was opening up from a little lower perspective, like teasing the adventures waiting around the corner

- Went to grayscale to create a sense of foreboding

- Decreased the brightness for a little bit of mystery, increased the exposure to bring in a little more light, and sorted the shadows just to get a bit more detail.

Editing the exposure, contrast, shadows and light balance to let the details pop


And here's the final result!

Of course, there will be those who prefer it to be in colour and have the vibrancy and pop. So, let me know, which one do you like?
