For November’s After-Before (one photo focus) I went with a simple edit this week.
I straightened the original, which was from Julie Powell of Julie Powell Photography. I then cropped it and applied a charcoal filter. I also adjusted the light and added a rounded border.
Maybe this is what it would look like if someone sat and loosely sketched this single rose still life.
I also wanted to add a few words that would add a message to edify a bit. I thought about an inspirational rose quote, or a “be still” saying, but then the three words, rejoice and be glad, from an old card came to mind (included at the end).
slide show and then the photos:
Here is the old image that inspired the three words.
Life is not perfect, but there is always something to be glad about. 🙂
