Editing

It’s been a while since I’ve done an Editing image but I took this photo of the Cliffs of Moher just last month in Ireland and really love Lightroom for making editing wonderful for an image that was all over the place with exposure. It took maybe a minute to edit and I really love the end result; something I could totally enlarge and treasure if I want. This is the power of shooting in raw and know how to edit simply. :)

I largely trust my intuition and inspiration when I compose photos. I get inspired mainly by my desire to express something I feel, though I usually cannot tell exactly what that is. ~ Elena Shumilova

Sometimes editing is just as fun as shooting.

In LOVE with this edit. Maybe it’s the subject that makes it even more pleasurable.

Happy THIRD day of Spring! The Fragance Garden is open at The Morton Arboretum and I caught this little birdie sitting so pretty on a rock.
Love this soft editing.
