Hyde park at Christmas time is wondrous… if you can ignore the crowds! Still, I couldn’t resist these charming characters.
I took the original and turned one version of it black and white, then I stripped the HDR from it. Next i took a colour version, ran it through a HDR program and brought the saturation levels up, repeat and up the contrast. Then I took the black and white image and the saturated HDR colour version and combined them, adjusting levels of contrast and saturation until I was happy with the combination. Taken and edited on the iPhone 4S.
