You Decide

Although in my professional mode I have been working with Photoshop for two decades, I generally don’t use it for my personal photos except to clean up an image in one way or another. I generally don’t use Photoshop for special effects on my own photos. Having said that, I had a lot of time on my hands and wanted to see how this photo would benefit – if at all – from a little different look.

Here is the original, exactly as it came from the camera …

And here is another way of looking at it …

Which do you prefer, and why? Comments on both photos welcome.

The comments below made me wonder … what if the castle were removed completely, and Disney World were taken totally out of the picture? Does this change how you think of it?

Disney World Flowers

It was late August and the heat had been extreme, but Disney Horticulture had done its best to keep the flowers as fresh as possible. Unfortunately it was a losing effort, but here are some of the best on display in The Magic Kingdom at the end of summer.
