edited aloha

I returned about a week ago from a trip to Hawaii. I had been looking forward to it for a long time, especially to the photo-taking opportunities. The trip was fun, but my pictures weren't as good as I'd hoped, partly because of the weather while we were there, perhaps. When I first saw them, I wasn't very pleased with what I'd captured. But I'm learning that art--even photography--is sometimes more about creating than capturing, and that's where some good editing comes in. It takes some patience and out-of-the-box thinking, but it pays off, I think. Check out the before...

And after!

Perhaps any picture can be good if you just find the right crop. What do you think?

oooh--I love both versions! The unedited one of the yellow flower is interesting too because it is such a bright color up against such a dark different tree. I haven't been here in forever-sorry! Glad you had a great trip :) Good job on keeping on blogging.
