Blue Pontocho

This photo comes from Pontocho – a row of restaurants that line one of the rivers in Kyoto. Visitors can dine on these platforms and enjoy the great atmosphere, which is especially enjoyable during pleasant weather. On this particular evening it had been raining for most of the day, but as you can see the vibe is still quite pleasant.

This photo is also another in my Lightroom Only series. If you use the sliders below, you can see a before and after of the image.

  • Gaijin au JaponI really love your work and what you are doing.
    Do you think it will be possible to know what you exactly did on lightroom on this shot?

    Thanks a lotReplyCancel

    • leslieIf I can remember what I did! 🙂 I think the main edits were for white balance to give it a bluer feel, split toning to make the lighted area a bit warmer, and then some edits for specific colors using the color adjustment module. I guess that’s not very specific but hopefully it gives you an idea!ReplyCancel
