sunrise behind a building

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for ideas about how to enhance the attached photo. I've done some airbrushing and played with various effects (in my .png version) but with the building in shadow, I can't get the zing I'm looking for. It's just after sunrise so it's supposed to be dark.


Thanks and regards

Hello. :)


Have you tried playing with adjustments in the adjustments tab? Such as Brightness/Contrast, Hue/Saturation, Levels, and Curves? See this guide for a brief overview : http://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/AdjustmentsMenu.html

Perhaps duplicating the image and playing with blend modes would be something to try too.

What I did:


-Apply a Curves (Ctrl+Shift+M) adjustment and set 1 point at 140,90.

-Apply a Hue/Saturation (Ctrl+Shift+U) adjustment at Hue 0, Saturation 125 and Lightness 0.

-Duplicate the Layer

-Apply an Isolate Line Art adjustment.

-Set blend mode to "Reflect" and opacity to around 160.


That's one very basic example using 1 plugin. Experiment and you should get what you're looking for.
