Leaving



I played with this image. Really I did. But it just looked better straight out of the camera. So here it is, totally unprocessed, with just my watermark added.

Sometimes the hardest thing for me to do is to just leave well enough alone. :)

you are wise to know when to just leave it...sometimes our cameras get it just right.

Me too. I do that with photos sometimes. I will spend half an hour or more and then realize they were wonderful to begin with.

Caroline said...

That is so true. I am learning that not everything needs a layer! This is just beautiful!

It's very pretty. Isn't it funny when you mess and mess with a photo, then realize the SOOC is better?

Damn, it's wonderful! I'd never think of taking a shot like this.

I know what you mean ... I do the same thing and it's amazing how often I stay with the original because it matches my memory so much better than anything 'tweaked' ;-)
