Play time



I wanted to do a new experiment with my workflow, I wanted to take some image to play with; I started searching in my archive and found this one. An old photo, but from my favourite place; Russel Market. I thought I would take a photograph that describes a play for playing with workflow. Sounds weired, huh ? Then call me a dumbo.
Jokes apart.Let me tell you the workflow here I did with this photograph.

1.Open the image in Photoshop CS2.
2.Click on image > adjustment > Match color.
3.Check box on "Neutralize.
4. Drag the luminance bar to 120 and color intensity to 75. Save it.
5. Click on filter > sharpen > unsharpen mask.
6. On the unsharp mask pop up window, select amount as 100,radius 3.0 and threshold 0.
7. Click on edit > fade unsharp mask > opacity 100, blending mode Darken.
8. Repeat the step number 6 and 7 but this time while fading put the opacity 85 and mode as lighten.
9. Resize the image accordingly; I resize it to 600 pixel.
10. Save it.

Now you can play with it too. Try your own way. I personally like the "cool feel" of this image. Do you ?
