I don’t edit any of my photos with the exception of cropping. I would love to know how but learning the programs and terms can be extremely time consuming and that’s something I don’t have right now. I’m always in the Digital Photography School Forum trying to learn this and that and decided to submit one of my photos to be critiqued by others just to see some of the things I need to work on. I also allowed them to play around with the photo and I have to say, one stood out the most. While it doesn’t really represent the original, it does make for a magnificent photo!!! I’d love to hear which one of the photos you like the most and why. Do you like photos in their original state, slight editing, or full blown photo makeover?
This first photo is the original cropped.
The second is the same but softened a bit.
Lastly, is the one that obviously has been dramatically changed. I think it’s soooooo cool!!
