Taking a Photo
Photo One Unedited
Photo Two Edited
Some folk want photos to be a true representation of reality: no fiddling please with Photoshop or any other program please. I took a photo of the entrance to the church yesterday in raw format, then saved it to jpg format, so here it is in photo one. The camera is pretty good, but the photographer doesn't always use it properly, so we have lens distortion. The second photo is my interpretation more of the reality I saw. I corrected some distortion, lowered the color a bit, removed some distraction in the top right corner, added a little paint to the water stain on the wall, added a bit of vignetting to the corners, and sharpened the image, and cropped it a bit. See what you think. I think it is a better representation of reality than the unedited one...
