Touch-up Tuesday: Stop & Stand Out!

Touch-Up Tuesday (Before)
Touch-Up Tuesday (After)
For this shot i was experimenting with my fish eye lens, which gives the mini stop sign {from thomas train table} its bulbed appearence. really wanted the lettering & color to POP out at you. to get this effect i first cropped, slighly increased saturation {careful here, too much increased saturation on red can really blow the color out} next increase exposure & contrast to drown out background more. a bit of focal soften around the center of the stop sign & to finish her off a smidge of white matte to give a hazy effect. and there you have it a bit of how to stop & stand out!
