When photographing in India, you are overwhelmed by two things: people and color. I love shooting the streets and the wonderfully friendly people of India, but I also love ‘texture‘. I find images like ‘Colorful Train Coonoor India’ with its incredible texture and color makes excellent fine art prints which you can download for only $5.00. It can also be a great background.
This image was created entirely in Lightroom. In the past, I would use numerous plugins like On1 and DxO Nik to amplify the texture and color. This time I created two versions. First I used Photoshop and the plugins. It looks great, but I also don’t like how using filters you end up blowing out highlights or losing shadows. So I decided to ‘PUSH’ the processing of the raw image even further and do a compare (Option C) to view the two images side by side in Lightroom. I had to go back several times, using multiple adjustment brushes. Finally, I actually got the final result I wanted. The beauty here was that the final image in using the Adobe Lightroom had the same vibrant colors and texture, but no blown highlights and not lost shadows. BUT, the Lightroom image was sharper with less noise.
