April Squares: Bright Spots

For the April Squares challenge this month, Becky has chosen the theme “Bright”. My entries this month will all be called Bright Spots. My photos in this series are selected from a project I am currently working on. I have received a digital photo frame as a gift, and I have been going through my archives for photos to include. What fun it has been to do that, a bright spot in my life for sure. I’ll include a bit about each photo entry. Here is today’s entry:

This original image, is quite nice but obviously underexposed:

ISO 800 f/16 170mm 1/2,000sec

My first edit was to apply the template, Fast Fix, and also crop the image just a bit:

ISO 800 f/16 170mm 1/2,000sec

I’m happy with this edit to go in the digital photo frame I am working on, but I was curious about creating a different version with a square crop:

ISO 800 f/16 170mm 1/2,000sec

It brings into focus just part of the landscape, so has a different feel than the original crop. I’ve also added a vignette. Your thoughts on these edits are welcome below.


Added to Day 13 of the Bright Squares challenge.
