How to Use Photoshop to bring Magic into the Landscape – Example: Glendalough

Todays image shows a lake about an hour south of Dublin, Ireland. This one was awesome to process in Photoshop, lots of colours and curves! Here is the final result:

and here the original:

To get the image I had to do a lot!

  • using levels to make the greens in the foreground ‘healthy’
  • using curves to colour sky and water (and grass again haha)
  • using layers to apply effects just to certain areas
  • using high pass filters to do dodging and burning on the water
  • clone stamp some clouds around

I also removed chromatic abberations which I didn’t show in this video. Why? Well the video would have been a little long AND I already made another tutorial earlier, here you go!

Happy processing!

  1. I do accept as true with all of the ideas you have introduced for your
    post. They’re very convincing and will certainly work. Nonetheless,
    the posts are too brief for beginners. Could you
    please extend them a little from subsequent time?
    Thank you for the post.

    1. Hi,
      thanks for your comment! If you check newer posts, you will see that they are much more extensive and cover all processing steps in more detail. I will also adapt older ones over time 🙂
