Lake Fenwick 3… art in the back yard

Posted by Mike on June 21, 2009

Using the “clarity” slider toward the minus side on your favorite Camera Raw processor or Lightroom can give you a smoooooooth diffuse effect. However, in this case I wanted the water lily flower to be sharp… So I made virtual copy of the photo. In copy one it’s as sharp as a tack. In copy two the clarity slider is almost all the way negative.

The two photos are opened in photoshop as layers. A layer mask is painted black to reveal the flower through the diffusion… then you “save” and export the image from Lightroom as per usual._MG_6995-Edit
