Desaturation 90 - Photography Contest [63 entries]

Troubles of a Traveler Picture

Winning entry, with a score of:
71.4%
Contest goal:

I want to see any photo with the saturation turned down to -70%. It takes the colors to a pale looking shade and almost old-timey looking shot. See if you can come up with the most creative shot that is most appealing and not just any photo that is good. Sometimes it takes that extra creativeness to snag the viewer's eye.

Should have been -70%

The saturation effect should be done to the entire photo and not just selected channels.


Required level: 5+ or higher.
Status: finished. Check out the winners below!

solkee: Would be nice if the original image was placed in the SBS so that the desaturated image can be compared. In some images it isn't all that apparent. ( 5 years and 1269 days ago )
friiskiwi: I agree ( 5 years and 1269 days ago )

poetress59: Question...or help needed....in my program in the saturation menu the photos are at 100, I have dropped it to 70...have I done this right or should I drop it to 30 and then it will be 70% desaturated. I was looking at other entries and the SBS and I think I did it wrong. ( 5 years and 1269 days ago )

friiskiwi: Looking at your images, you have now got it right. ( 5 years and 1269 days ago )
CMYK46: Just my humble opinion, but I think posting the original images in the SBS should have been mandatory, as Solkee suggested. ( 5 years and 1268 days ago )
