novus2007's Runner

Here is the original (this is not my image):


Just thought I'd try an adjustment since I haven't done one in a while. This is a lot different than my standard style of adjustment. Usually I'm trying to reveal detail but in this case I increased the contrast of the runner and the tower to create dark silhouettes.


I've purposely cropped the image closer to put the focus square on the runner. I also wanted the runner in the 'rule of 3rd' apex in the bottom right with the path leading towards the center of the image. I've also added the brushed metal layer to add a sort of apocalyptic feel to the image as if he is really running for his life ;-)
