ISO 80; f/3.2; 1/10; 7mm (Canon SX10, no tripod) (Above photo is a cropped version of the first one posted… Deena had a good point about the left side of the image being distracting.)
On yesterday’s photo walk (yes, I actually went on one finally)… I was taking photos of different textures and colors in hopes of using them in future creative exercises with photoshop. I thought this one had merit all on its own. So much texture!
I first ran it through Topaz deJpeg and then through Topaz Adust – Photo Pop, with an adjustment to detail. back in Aperture, I increased the yellow hue.
