Gompers Park, Chicago, Illinois
Gompers Park is located at Foster & Pulaski in the North Mayfair neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois.
Editing was done on the JPG using Luminar Flex 1.1. I used the Develop filter to adjust the color temperature to make it slightly warmer, increase the contrast and clarity and open up the shadows a bit. Next I added the Accent AI filter and used the Polarizing filter to minimize the reflection from the leaves.
When I took the photo the leaves had not started to change yet but I wanted an autumn look to the image so I added an adjustment layer and used the HSL filter and the Golden Hour filters to do this. On the HSL filter I selected the Hue tab and moved the green, red and yellow sliders all the way to the left. Then I selected the Saturation tab and moved increased the saturation of those colors.
Lastly I added the Orton filter (Type #1) about a third of the way up.
