“Beauty can be seen in all things, seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph.” – Matt Hardy
One of the most fun aspects of travel for me is discovering the subtle, often missed details that contribute to the unique character of a city or a landscape scene. With a camera in hand, I’m more aware of my surroundings and actively look for ways to capture ordinary scenes in a different fashion than the usual tourist’s snapshot. Sometimes I’m successful, other times I’m not, but no matter the outcome, I always enjoy those moments.
As anyone who uses Adobe Lightroom or Photoshop knows, one can spend endless hours manipulating digital photos. After lots of experimentation, of the two photos below, I prefer the one with high color intensity. Which one do you like better?
Thanks for looking!
