Change

A little change of pace on here. I usually don’t go too crazy when I’m editing photos, but stick to contrast and color balance kind of things.

With this photo I just didn’t have good light or exposure (code for I didn’t do a good job of taking the picture). I liked the subject and was OK with how I framed it, but I couldn’t get the colors just right. It was beautifully painted and the post processing just wasn’t cutting it.

Instead of throwing the photo out I played around with it for awhile. What I came out with I sort of liked. It emphasized the foreignness of the structure through the characters on the sign and the shape of the shrine stood out.

It wasn’t what I was originally looking for or what I’d normally do, but change can be good.
