So here is the shop shot, of the Cove Fish shop down at Lulworth Cove in Dorset.
An older image, December 2014. One that I have breathed fresh life into. I like the end result.
Here are the before and after images.
Before we have quite a dull, lifeless image. What is interesting in this shot? The shop face and the path leading into it.
So this was worked on in Photoshop. Using a combination of the spot removal brush and clone stamp I removed some of hte power lines, and the boat and other distractions to the left. Everything else was done in Lightroom. I brightened the shop and darkened the surroundings.
This is how I tend to work - I start with global adjustemnts in Lightroom, then local adjustments, finishing off with cleaning up the image in Photoshop.
Thanks for reading this post - please let me know if you want the Lightroom settings for this image. Tomorrow I will post the next image for my Dorset photography page here on my blog, which you can get straight to at
