Re: a critique about processing an image

Brad Ross wrote:

I took this image at a plaza in Cuba. I was on a photography tour where we would show each other the shots that we had taken during the day. This is obviously processed. That was first reaction, although the person liked it. The critique that I would like is.....the processing too much and distracts, or if you like it but think that it could be altered, what would be your recommendations

My PP knowledge is flat basic, so my suggestions may be naive, but here goes:

1.  Level it.

2.  Neutralize dots/spots of color inconsistent with the overall sepia-pinkish tone.  These would be the tabletop green, red, and blue lights, and the spot of blue in the small shelter/shrine(?) at rear.

3.  Crop off some of the top and some of the left side, but I don't visualize any trims will turn out to be transformative.

Overall, what you have accomplished with the image is a big improvement over the original.  People and architectural details are much more visible.
