A simple photo of a few cattails at the edge of the lake after a dusting of morning snow.
It was initially underexposed and boring.
Here is the original.
After some playing around in photoshop and adding a few textures here is the end result.
This is one of the things about post-processing that I love. You can 'salvage' a photo that didn't turn out as planned. Not only does it give you some leeway when it comes to perfecting your camera setting, but also it affords you more creativity when 'developing' your photo! Photography has officially moved from the darkroom to the desktop.
