EDIT THE SHOT
1 AUTO TAB Try the Auto Tab in the Basic menu of Adobe Camera Raw to see what it does to the image. The latest version is the best yet and often does a great job.
2 LENS CORRECTIONS Another essential step is to apply Lens Corrections to remove chromatic aberrations from the image and also make any other corrections based on the profile of the image – in this case a Canon 17-40mm zoom.
3 DEHAZE AND VIBRANCE To improve clarity and give the image a boost, the Dehaze slider is set to +20. The Vibrance slider is also increased to +28 to subtly increase colour strength. The image now looks more lively.
4 DARKEN THE CORNERS Clicking the Lens Corrections icon again, the Vignette slider is dragged over to the left. This adds a subtle vignette, darkening the corners and drawing attention to the composition’s centre.
BelowTIME AND MOTION The shot only needs a few tweaks in post-production because the image effect is created in-camera when using Lensbaby lenses
