Venetian Blind post production effect... With or without the blind?

Updated: Aug 28, 2019

There's four hours retouching in adding the Venetian blind.

Despite what I read and viewed online prior to starting the job, it is, in fact, a complex technique, and very difficult to pull off a "photo realistic" blind, at high resolution, to a given brief.

I'm happy with the finished result, as far as the retouching goes, but during the process I began to question it's very effect on the shot?

I think it may change the narrative a little too much. I was surprised that the presence of the shadows pivoted the shot in a different direction.

What do you think?

Let me know in the comments below...

I hope you enjoy viewing the images - Colin
