From Ordinary Photo to Personalized Notecard

Posted By Earl J On April 6, 2012 @ 12:00 am In Photo Tips | 3 Comments

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 [1]?
