Here it is, March One Photo Focus with my image in the center of the attention. Please, go to Stacy’s blog Visual Venturing to see 24 amazing entries. It is very nice to see that most of them enjoyed editing this image, although some found it challenging… but I hope no one really had too much trouble.
I took this picture on a beautiful Sunday morning, October 2006. I was visiting Salzburg and was just about to enter the lovely Mirabel gardens, a very beautiful place, when I spotted this cluster of tables in front of the cafe. The figure holding the plant captured my attention and I snapped it without much thought.
I knew there would be some great, crazy edits of my image, so I kept it simple. Few basic things, touch of color and a bit of Focal Soften. I was there and I remember how beautiful the day was, so I tried to bring it back from the corners of my memory.
Again, I was the only one who flipped the image. 😀 I did it as an afterthought, I don’t think it improved or took away from the original. The thing I like the most is the autumn feel I brought with the colors.
