Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Purple

A photograph of boats at Hyde Park Marina in San Francisco.

Camera: Canon EOS 600D
Lens: Canon EF-18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM

Focal Distance: 27 mm

Software: Adobe Lightroom Classic and Photoshop

The challenge topic set by Sandy was purple… Well flowers are purple like the image below… but for my main image, above, I thought I would process an image and give it a purplish hue feel to the sky and sea. I did this by using a gradient filter on the whole image and then using the hue/saturation and luminance targeting tool changed the properties till I got the hue I wanted.
