Tonight, we dined – on fish! Lots and lots of fish.
My friend, husband, and greatest supporter introduced me to sushi. I only tried it because he loved it. I’m so glad I was brave for love’s sake. I heart sushi. My entire life I did not eat fish, nor like fish. Any fish. I hated it. I did not even want to try sushi. Now? I am a sushi monster. Love!
So, tonight after a birthday party at Dave & Buster’s, we head out for sushi. I was not only thrilled about getting to eat sushi. I was also thrilled to get a picture of sushi for my 365 Project.
This time I didn’t spend too long picking the photo. I got that. But what grabbed me in rapt attention was the edits on this photo. From the original picture, to applying different edits; the picture came alive in all different ways.
This is where photography supersedes to a whole new level. It’s not just the angle, the settings, and the shot. It can be about the edits too.
Here is the picture I took.
The rest are the same image using edits (I use Picnik) to enhance/change texture or coloring.
Pretty cool, eh?
I’m leaning towards the Orton-ish for my Day 29 photograph, but torn between that, and the CinemaScope, or HDR-ish. See what I mean?
Thing is, none of these are a better image than the other – they are the same image. It all comes down to preference.
Which is your favorite edit?
