Now, here is the before and after for todays edit:

As you may have guessed, this is yet another photo taken in Japan earlier this year – I do apologize for the plethora of Japan images over the last weeks, but I am stuck in this place in my head and like to dive into the photos whenever I can.

Now, for this editing, there was barely anything to do. Why? Well, for one, I used one of the presents (or “looks” how they call them in Aurora) to get me a mile through the process. There are those that do not like using presents – I however find them most useful. While I agree that one should learn how to create a look without one initially, there is a time when they simply save… time.

So, after using the preset, I only had to add a vignette – and that was it! Below is the proper final image as you can find on my portfolio.
