That’s the question that Karina over at The Positive Page suggested, and tonight I decided to take her up on that … and this is just a start.
On our local weather site, people can upload photos, and today I was reminded of one of my own — someone had shot exactly the same tree as I did a few years back. Here you go … this is from St. Joseph’s Catholic Cemetery in Saint John, NB.
I cropped it a little and turned it b/w to try and enhance the somewhat dramatic effect of the tree. The colours in this shot did nothing to it. It’s from 2009.
Here’s another one from 2009 … an old gull, standing guard over Saint John. I didn’t do much post processing to this, except a little careful cropping.
There’s a very shallow depth of field here, but I don’t think it’s thanks to any of my own skills at that time.
Time and again, I’ll keep doing this … looking at old shots on my discs, bring up a few and see if they can be enhanced in any way, or if I even like them as is.
