to delete or not to delete

that is the question i ask myself when i get a picture that i'm not totally in love with. as is the case with this picture. bailey was sitting next to a window and i liked how her profile looked, so i took her picture. this is the untouched, original photo. yuk!


it didn't turn out how i thought it would and i almost deleted it. then i started playing around with it in photoshop to try and fix it. i tried playing with the exposure, with the color, then i tried adding a filter and boo-yah. a photo that would have ended up "on the cutting room floor" ended up with an entire post dedicated to it's resurrection.


until we meet again my friends-

  2. Mom Kim here- so glad I stopped by so I could get a reminder about why I want a new computer. I love what you did with that pic - I know many of the ones I post could use some help. But first I NEED a new 'puter - ths one is OLD - even the CD drive doesn't work anymore and it makes a buzzing sound once in a while. I don't want to put any more on the hard drive like Photoshop or any kind of photo editting stuff.

  4. I love it when that happens :)
    Salvaging/tweaking/improving photos is a lifesaver sometimes.
