I took this picture last year.
I love it, but I felt like it needed something extra done with it. My camera washed the scene out; while it looks hazily romantic, it’s not clear enough to see what was there.
Here’s what I came up with: first, I darkened it to make it look closer to the actual scene.
Then, just for fun, I took the colour out of it.
I like the way the swans pop out of the picture in this last one.
Which do you prefer?
