Luskentyre Sands on Harris is a very well photographed area with hundreds of photographers going there every year. Yet another from the Archive of old and forgotten snaps. I also have a Print Archive which sounds very grand (actually it’s the back bedroom).
I thought I would do a post about split-toning. Very often when I see split toned pictures on the internet the two tones have roughly equal saturation. A very common split toning combination is a Sepia and a cool tone as done above. I used Lr 4.1 to do these pictures, the Numbers I used were – Highlights 49 degrees saturation 15% , Shadows 226 degrees Saturation 6%, Split balance +70.
The Cool tone is meant to be very subtle.
Above is a copy of the toned file will the spilt toning turned off.
As I have done a few times before in this type of post give an idea of where I started with un-processed colour file.
Wether the spilt-toning has added any thing to final picture is open to debate what do you think?
A big hello to all the new followers of my little blog, why not drop by and leave comment?
