First, you need the right victim. Whoops, I meant the right subject. Which could be the victim. In this case, a bunch of screen grabs from Barbarella. This is the bird attack scene and color correcting was a nightmare. I know, I know, this woman does not look like Jane Fonda. I can’t explain that but I did go all soft and poster like on the focus.
And now you have to work the problem. What else could be done? Does your design have to photo based? Work the problem!
Maybe some extra exposure is all you need and the right border. This works for me!
