I took this photo from the dam

This was a fun lesson. I took some photos of the cooling tower of the Shearon Harris nuclear plant from the dam overlook at Jordan Lake. I used Lightoom to make the photo dark and gloomy and added the text.

I took this photo from the dam overlook at Jordan Lake, which is south of Raleigh. Shearon Harris is not far from the lake, which is one of the drinking water supplies for the Triangle. We live about 35 miles from there. I use Photoshop Elements and figured out the steps needed to do this process in PSE. I posted the changes on the class discussion page.

I tried the technique on some other photos:

Selective Color processing is one of my go to processing options. This sailboat was enjoying the perfect weather on Lake Pinehurst. I used a Lightroom preset to select just the red in the image.
