Pocket Balance

Pocket Balance. David Hayes, 2012
i365 project, 131/365. (TouchReTouch, PhotoForge 2, Snapseed)


Recipe:
Captured image using native camera app...
Opened in TouchReTouch to remove some "dust and dirt" from the black background...just a quick clean-up....Saved.

Opened in PhotoForge2.....
1.) Did a little cropping to tighten up the composition.
2.) Applied "Sharpen" @54%
3.) Applied "Brightness & Contrast"
4.) Used "Sin City" @ 60%
5.) At this point I saved the image in Camera Roll to use a base layer. Staying in PhotoForge2, I continued to build....
6.) Vignette @72%
7.) At this point, I reopened the "Sin City" layer as a "New Layer".
8.) Flattened the two layers and saved!

Reopened in Snapseed to do a little more "Selective Adjust" for brightness and contrast.
Saved...and done!
