After-Before Friday is an event which allows photographers to share their processed images, and, if they choose, their post-processing steps. On the first Friday of the month, all participants have the opportunity to edit the same photo in the “One Photo Focus” challenge.
- First, I opened the image in Photoshop and added a vignette
2. I then opened the image in Google’s Nik Color Efex Pro 4 software, where I boosted the ‘perceptual saturation;’ basically, this enriches the colours.
3. I applied a layer mask to soften and fine tune the effect.
4. The most noteworthy edit took place in Analog Efex Pro 2. I applied a tilt-shift bokeh effect, a double exposure effect, and another subtle vignette.
5. A few more tweaks in Lightroom, and I was done!
Once again, the before vs the after:
I hope you enjoyed my edit! I’d love to hear your thoughts and suggestions on the end result. Images from other contributors can be seen here.

Now, this is very creative! The zoom-in effect of the second exposure is very imaginative. And thanks for showing the steps in how you did it.
Thank you, Robin 🙂
