Before and after. Post production
Demonstration of using artistic license to capture the ambiance of a diner. The left is the original image. The right had the following adjustments: Removed man, removed parking lot striping, removed van, removed reflection of van in truck window, removed light over clock, adjusted shadow exposure, cropped to 8x10, adjusted distortion of wide angle lens, removed distracting items from parking areaand railroad tie. Cropping is so important this side by side does not do the finished image justice, so go to the next one.
