Balboa Fun Zone Street – Balboa Peninsula


I took so many pictures last week in Balboa Peninsula as a photo shooting project to show the theme and culture of the place. I’m sharing one of the pictures that I’m done processing, I took many pictures for the Balboa Fun Zone are (built in 1936). I processed below one as a single shot HDR! then did post processing in Photoshop Elements. I applied brightness, contrast , color levels and noise reduction then sharpness on selective areas by using layers and masks. I liked giving it warmth moody look and muted color toning.

Below is the final picture and I also put the three versions of the image in the gallery slide (to show the power of post processing and how I progressed visually to the final result). The first one is straight from the camera , the second after processing it as HDR (Single shot) and the third one which I loved is after doing post processing in Photoshop Elements. I’m still learning by myself and the only driver is my passion and having fun experimenting different things randomly.
