All three pix today are from the same old photo. Same crop, but the first above, Laying Down the Pattern (7-17-10 10012e), is straightforward, no fussing. It's over three years old and has sat in its folder all that time unposted due to a little focus problem. (Which is what can happen when a much larger photo gets cropped so small. But I've never been able to make it "work" as a larger pic, even though each time I come across it I try cropping the full original yet another way.)
This second below, Stirring the Brew (7-17-10 10012v2), has clearly been massively fudged with in both Photoshop and MS Picture Manager:
And the third below, Study in Mauve (7-17-10 10012ev7), has also been obviously heavily edited:
Why so often do I make several versions of a picture? Mostly because as I go along I see results I like but I don't yet feel settled on, so I save them, just in case. Then when I settle on a version, I've got those I'd saved along the way still calling to my imagination.
