before and after...

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.




  1. Now it looks like a fine painting! Fabulous!

  2. WOW! Now that is was a nice shot before, but now it is almost storybook in perfection. :)
