|Original picture of a female thief in Divinity's Reach from ANet.|
I added an elliptical blur centered on the lady thief. With the back ground unfocused she becomes the solitary center of attention. In addition, add a more cooler look to somber the mood down a little bit.
Here I added a drama filter found in the iPad app Snapseed. It heightens the ambient light and contrast to produce a striking picture.
I do not know if this is the original of if I worked on this one also but we'll use it as the baseline.
I love these style of pictures! I used Colorblast! to desaturate the picture and then add back the reds and greens that you see. I wanted to get the bow also but its base color really didn't stand out from the background so I just declared victory with what you see know.
Here is another example of a center focus but with and added filter on top.
This was a rather epic PvP picture from ANet. I had to mess with it.
Here again with the drama filter. Again, it pops out all the little details.
Here I added a drama filter, then a magenta based filter radiating out from the guardian and a frame to polish it off. It really isn't meant to mean anything, it just looked cool.
This a grunge filter, also found in the Snapseed app. It produces almost a past memory feel.
