Before & After #21

Today's edit is a little more drastic than I like to do. But in my defense, this was just about the last photo of the evening, sun was pretty much already down, and we were headed to the car when I said wait! Let's stop for just a second! So we did.

Canon 5D, 25-105 f/4L @ 24mm, f/4, 1/640 sec, ISO 1250
Edited in Photoshop CS3

When I took the photo, I knew I'd be removing the pole. I wasn't sure what I'd do about the stores. But I had to have a picture with the boat! I think this boat is one that was washed up and left from the hurricane. The photo was quite underexposed and I wanted it to feel more...beachy. lol!

  1. Nice job. That was a tough one (in my book, anyway) and you killed it!

  2. This looks great. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  3. I love this, I think your edit is absolutely perfect! I like how you took th restaurant/store out of the background too. Just beautiful!
