so I just registered on photography-on-the.net

trying to learn different techniques in PP using LR and PS. Some of the guys on there are pretty damn talented.

Came across this one and had to share it. pretty impressive that he was able to bring the picture back like that.

i used a bunch of the gradient tool thing in lightroom to fix this. the bottom half i used the gradient to add more light or up the exposure. it then made the cement to bright so i went back with another one to bring the exposure back down. then i used more on the top to bring the exposure back down on the sky and add color.

i did not photoshop anything in or out. its all exposure and color adjustments.

before



after
