Diane and I were vacationing in Portugal a few years ago and relaxing outside of our apartment. She spied this dormer, as seen in the first photo, and took a quick shot. In my opinion it is an “OK” shot but it needs some editing help if it is to become a great photo.
The second picture shows what a few minutes of thoughtful editing can do (any photo editing software can be used). In this case I cropped slightly, enriched the colors a tad, but the most important change was to straighten the dormer.
That might have been the end of my story, but a couple of years later Diane was wanted to get some note cards from Shutterfly and thought the dormer shot might make a good photo for the front panel of the card.
We followed through with that idea, so the third photo shows you how the dormer shot has been re-invented and used as a note-card subject.
Do you have any shots that could be tuned into personalized note cards?
