A while back I was reviewing a series of photographs to select which were worth keeping. It goes without saying, usually, that a high percentage of pictures end up getting tossed. I’ll occasionally hang on to those which fall under the “maybe” category but eventually the decision has to be made.
There are times when I’ll put in the effort to enhance a picture just to provide extra emphasis. In most cases these adjustments will be undetectable but beneficial. There are other instances when simply letting loose and trying something different never hurts.
I’m always on the lookout for new and different photographic effects just to stretch my muscles creatively. From there it’s all trial and error whether there’s any benefit to be had.
Provided here is the end result of a late night experiment with a new effect which helped save a very plain photo from obscurity.
