Fishy Sage Revisited

On Wednesday, I posted a few pictures taken with the Samyang 8mm fisheye lens on my Fujifilm X-E1. I didn’t do much in the way of editing at the time, and posted the images pretty much as the JPGs came out of the camera. But one of them started nagging at me, and demanding that I make a bit of an effort with it, and that’s what I did. Well, actually, I ignored that image, and looked at one a couple of frames earlier in the set.

I started by using Photoshop CC to remove an annoying bit of Tyne Bridge that was a distracting element on the right, then made a load of adjustments in Lightroom 5, and finally added a slight vignette to darken the corners using Perfect Effects. And this is the result:

Fishy Sage
