Fall in the Country

You never know what you’re going to find on a farm. Tractors and pumpkins: definitely. A gorgeous fence, field, and sunset: any day. But steps that lead to nothing? I chuckled at that one. The original wasn’t much different than the finished product. Less golden light and vibrance. I increased the clarity and slid the tintContinue reading “Fall in the Country”

Fairs are usually full of people, and sometimes that’s not a fun thing. . . I straightened the original, lowered the contrast, increased the clarity and vibrance. IContinue reading “Fair Food & Fun”
