I wanted to try another round on Kim's Moody Magic Recipe. This time, I started with an image that was more similar with the warm earth tones. I really wanted to get the lovely browns in the bottle that she got here.
In LightRoom, I played with the sliders to darken shadows, blacks, added a tone curve to accentuate highlights and make moodier shadows. Still don't quite understand what I'm doing with split tones. I did add the Waterfront7 Magic Texture on Screen blend mode, masking out the bottle.
I also used an additional Hue Adjustment Layer in PSE to tone down the aqua/blues in the bottle. But I never did quite get the lovely browns from split toning that Kim did. Somewhere I missed a step.
Then on over into PSE for a couple of Texture layers : Waterfront7 Magic on screen blend mode and then duplicated with soft light blend mode. I think I'm getting the hang of this!
Here's the original photo I started with. Even on this gray overcast April day, there seems to be too much light. I think I prefer the moody version. ;-)
