You have heard me say this before, I had planned on doing something different, but got distracted by another image.  When I planned what I was going to rework today, this image did not come to mind.

Ghostly Klara - OriginalI took this image 18 months ago.  I used my neutral density filter to give me a longer exposure so Klara would look like a ghost.  The neutral density filter I had was crap and turned everything pink.  I have learned so much since this image that I am more confident about getting rid of the pink.

Ghostly Klara - ReworkedToday I spent a lot more time on it.  I tried to get rid of the pink tinge, and I think that worked.  You, hopefully, will notice that the image has been cropped.  I think that works much better and maybe I could have done it more.  I didn’t try too hard to get rid of the white outside, but I am not too fussed with it.

I did some blurring with it and changed the lighting inside the shed to try and highlight Klara standing next to the window.  I attempted to bring out the detail without it being too dominant in the image.  I much prefer the rework.

Ghostly Klara - Color Efex 1Because I can, I played with the image in Color Efex.  I think the above image was done with the preset Paper Toner.  I like the effect.  I had done one with her in color and the rest in this tone.

Ghostly Klara - Color Efex combineYou can decide what you think.  I haven’t quite made up my mind yet.

Ghostly Klara - Color Efex 2I can’t remember what I used with this.  It was with Color Efex again.  I don’t mind this at all.  It is soft and the colours are really nice.  Though, not a lot of difference to the reworked image.

I do think this is a much better rework than the original.  I am sure I put this image on the blog about 18 months ago, but I can’t find it anywhere.  Maybe I just thought I had.

Every time I go up I mean to do it again, but then stuff happens and I don’t, but I will do it again.  So much fun.  It is nice to do images sometimes that are just for fun.
