October 21, 2007
I’ve been trying to go through folders and folders of photos I never had a chance to finish editing (some go back to early 2007 believe it or not). As I look through them I saw my taste and skill level significantly changed and some photos that appealed to me back then..no longer do.
I opened up a folder from October 21, 2007 that I had mostly edited a majority of the photos, within, and decided that I would go through it one more time. I wanted to see if anything else was worthy of being worked on and then consider that folder “case closed.”
As I was quickly flipping through the photos in the folder I came across the photo below (and almost passed it right by) and something made me go back to it. If you saw the original you’d probably have passed it right by too because it really looked kind of bad.
Something told me that I might be able to make something out of the photo that I would really love. I think it was the way the trees lined up in the composition that caught my eye and the fence line in the distance to the right.
I spent about 30 minutes editing the photo, experimenting the whole time and in the end this is what I came up with. I’m happy I didn’t pass this photo by as junk because I’m so pleased with how I was able to transform it from the *original.
*I was going to show the original but it’s VERY VERY bad…so I squashed that idea quickly. Instead I leave you with just the finished project:
