I took this photograph in Normandy, France:
What attracted me to the scene was the colors. Also the various lines in the scene, the shoreline, the pier, and the horizon. So when I went to edit, the first thing I did was to crop and straighten the photo, to accentuate some of those lines:
The next step was to remove some dust spots that were visible and also the two people that were on the pier. These small edits helped to distill the image down to what I wanted. My next edits were to boost and clarify the colors. I kept these edits to a minimum because in my opinion the scene was beautiful as it was.
What do you think, do the edits stay close enough to the original? do the lines in this image appeal to you? Feel free to leave a comment below.
