  • Editing : Yes, very slight editing done for this image, I have used DxO optics software for this. I have downloaded it today itself and proving version 9 absolutely free till 28th Feb 2017. And it’s not promotion, its my experience. I have tried editing this photograph in adobe lightroom but i was not getting what i want. Then I used DxO optics and i realized the way Lightroom and DxO optics are identifying colors of a photograph is slightly different. For this photograph DxO is identifying colors a bit bright than Adobe Lightroom. So I used DxO, It’s a must try. So coming back to the editing, see below points.
    • Increased Exposure to 0.75
    • I used built-in Candy Color Preset of DxO Optics. This has enhance lighting of golden temple
    • Color Vibrancy reduced to -20
      • Saturation Increased to 50

So here comes another image, for this, i have just copied the settings for above images and pasted setting in below image
