January Squares: Moonlight on a Bottle

This post is about how much editing can change the story of a photograph. I started with this:

ISO 200 f/2.2 4.2mm 1/17sec

I took this photo while on a tour of De Halve Maan Brewery in Brugge. But for the edit I was working on, I wanted the photo to be about moonlight. The use of a square crop was a quick way to accomplish that:

ISO 200 f/2.2 4.2mm 1/17sec

The potential competition of what the photo is about is removed with the crop. While I liked the color in the original photo, in a cropped variation the black and white was visually more appealing to me. This photo, shot on my iPhone, was edited in Luminar and has the Andes Dream filter and a vignette added to it.
