Yesterday I showed you a photo that was then compared with a version that had a little more contrast and had been made slighter darker and slightly sharper. As with any amendment, if you like it then it is good to make the change and if you don't like it then don't do it.

I have used the same photo today and used a technique called posterization. This means reducing the gradations of colour within the photo. Instead of smooth transitions between the grades of colour there are fewer variations and more obvious demarcations. This technique has its origins in poster making, hence the name.

Compare this photo with those of yesterday. See which one you prefer and then think about amending your photos (or not).

Happy snapping
