The Parlor

The Parlor TM2_8018

Photo: Hand-held. ISO 400. 10mm wide-angle lens. 1/80 @ f/4. SB 800 on-camera @1/2 bounced vertically (the ceiling was very dark so the light spill was very subtle).
In ACR, I adjusted the white balance only and opened it in PS. I subsequently adjusted the Curve slightly via the colour channels. A Warm Filter adjustment layer was added at 40% to bring back some warmth and atmosphere. Next I done a little canvas rotation using 'Transform' to straighten the verticals and cropped. I finished it by running a Guy Gowen sharpening action pulled back to 30%.
