[ #28952 ]

Another shot from San Francisco. Moderate post processing on this to
        bring out the colours and contrast (you can see the original by
        removing the _pp).

        This gate struck me as being so old in a place so new. It was almost as
        though 1635 were the year it was built.

  • That's a great picture. What part of SF was that taken in? Looks kind of like the area around Coit Tower

  • What did you use for it? It looks really good on this photo.
    • Photoshop 7.

      Basic process was:
      • Convert to lab.
      • In Curves, bring the a and b channels in about 20 points at the top and bottom. This enhances the colours a bit without blowing anything out (comes from Dan Margulis' book "Photoshop LAB Color: The Canyon Conundrum").
      • Convert back to RGB
      • Add layer, selective colour. Saturated and desaturated some colours until I was happy.
      • Add layer, curves. Basic S-shaped curve to bring out the contrast.
      • Using the lasso tool, selected an outline around the image with a 100px feather
