Arun and Vanessa are crushing it in this shot much like the way I’m crushing the contrast :). The original shot was “okay” in my view, but I felt it could do with some “oomph”. Here I’ve upped the contrast and graded the color of the highlights (blue) and shadows (green) to create this crunchy, other-worldly image. It may not be everyone’s taste but it matches pretty closely what I saw in my head.
