step by step

Sometimes people ask me about how much I edit my photos, and the quick answer is that it varies. Nonetheless, I thought it might be interesting to show you an example of the photo editing process. I'm still into flower shots, so I'm using one of those from last weekend.

This is the original:

First, I used iPhoto's "enhance" feature.

Next, and perhaps most importantly, I cropped it.

Then, I increased the exposure a bit.

I increased the saturation and warmed up the temperature.

 And finally, I added a touch of the "Holga-ish" effect in Picnik.

 And there you have it! Do you like the result?
