Day Fifty Two

In the spirit of the Over Under series I have been doing, here is a photo that was a mouse click away from being trashed because it was a lousy shot straight from the camera.  But since I’ve discovered Lightroom and it’s Harry Potter like magic I decided to see what could come from it.  Above is the result of a little tweaking and below is the original.  I’m still on the fence about post processing an image and believe that you should do your best to get the result you want straight from the camera but on the off-chance you do get a craptastic shot it sure is nice having options.

So who is next? Include your name, where you shot the picture, what the picture is of, and why you took it.

    Actually, I like the colors of the original one better! Maybe just a little burning or multiply/fiddle with opacity….
