Ok, I am constantly posting pictures on this blog that I have edited to make them exactly how I like them. I really like the new software (Aperture 3) that I bought for my macbook. Usually in 5-10 minutes you can take a ho-hum image and make it stand out. I decided to show how significant the difference can be with just a few minutes work. This image was edited in about 5 minutes. I adjusted the exposure, contrast and vibrancy. I added a little vignette, polarized the sky and dodged (lightened) the area around the boats and water.
