Well here it is Sunday night and I'm just squeaking my "Good to Wow" edit in, again, at the last moment. Thanks Ashley and Jill.
Early in the week I chose a photo based on the theme sunset. I was really happy to see this as the topic as I have a bunch of late day shots that I feel I've not been doing justice to-and uncertain how to enhance properly.
On June 20th, the eve of the longest day of the year, I had a great photo evening lasting more than 2 hours. I shot in about 6 different places, each seeming more magical than the last. The sky was enchanting that evening. Here is one of my favorite shots, that I chose to work with.
When I have a sunset photo I'm never sure whether to warm it, cool it, or just leave it be. I think that the SOOC shot stands on its own pretty well, but I love the intensity of color that the edited version has. Helps me to remember that fabulous evening.
In about 2 weeks I'll be finishing my 365. I'm looking at that as bittersweet, but hoping to have a little more time for editing rather than feeling that racehorse below me driving me on to shoot photos everyday. We'll see.
Thanks Ashley and Jill. I'm enjoying these tutorials, even if I'm a little late in getting the job done.
