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 ;-)

      Done. Thank you. How come the resolution still looks good even after the heavy crop? By the way, I composed an email to you in the time you fiddled with my photo!!

      That was fortunately a large image to start with. I think the brushed metal layer, which is in higher detail, along with the high contrast may be masking any graininess to the heavy crop.

      Beautiful work. Definitely achieved that apocalyptic feel, between the lonely runner and that ominous sky.

      The original was good, and the adjustment makes it something different; both compelling in their own right
