Prague, February 2008.
The morning was cold and bright. The reflection off of the cobblestone plaza was very nearly blinding. And for so early in the day- on a Sunday, in February- there were still a lot of people around.
Although I liked the original photo, I have processed it a few different ways over the years. Occasionally I get lucky and strike some way of processing a photo that people seem to find pleasing. For the most part, though, I'm not exactly a visual thinker. I'm more of a verbal guy. That often makes me the hardest of all to please, when it comes to my own pictures.
I have not played around much with duo-toning in Lightroom until recently. I just don't naturally think of that process when I look at a photo: "Gee, that would look nice if the highlights were this color and the shadows were that color." Nope. Not a natural occurrence.
All I was looking for was something to post on #Instagram last week, and this is what I came up with. I think I nailed it this time! #ShamelessBrag So, I guess the moral of the story is that I should never think of any particular photo as "done," but rather all of my photos continue to be works in progress.
