I was at Gyeongbokgung Palace at Seoul. It was beautiful. Like my boyfriend told me, maybe it's not very special the palace reconstructed by patriotisme of the people after had been burned during the Japanese colonial periode. But even though I loved these roof tiles a lot, all the signification with details was wonderful.
So when I retouched this photo with Lightroom, I avoid to lost diffrences between bright side and dark side of the roof. I wished all of them could keep their moment like a finger prints. And these days I like to retouche with balance crushed. In general, maintain the level of constrast is considered as a very important key in photo. Maybe this one look a little bit surrealistic because I pulled up dark side relatively. But I think, when you know what you wanna show, it can have some proper level of constrast. It can be very experimental method, I try to go way more, way far.
By the way speaking of finger print, second photo the wrinkled one is my grand mother's. She told me she hates that I take this photo(But she smiled). Her hand tells more than her face.
