Playing with color
Last month Justin and I went shooting for his birthday. Afterward, we decided to drive to Moapa which is just a short drive on the outskirts of Las Vegas. It is a small town, home to Moapa Indian Reservation. We didn't go to the reservation, however we did drive the back roads of the town and toured the neighborhoods, and I snapped my camera at just about everything in sight. I took so many photos as we drove past house after house. I took a picture of a wheel move sprinkler (of which I did not know the name of until just now when I researched sprinklers on-line). I really liked how the picture came out, considering it was shot during a drive-by. Even so, I thought the color looked a little dull. Here is the original photo, a raw image straight from my camera.
I had another photo of the same scene. Here is the result after playing with it in Picasa 3 Editor.
I really like the effects I put in and I think it looks much better than the original. It's much more interesting.
What do you think?
