the power of photo shop. i did an edit and experimented with a little stronger effects than what i usually do just for fun. then i thought i would make a before and after just to see what people think.
the original isn't all that great of a shot so some extra post production effort needed to be applied.
i often wonder when i see a truly exceptional photo here on da or another part of the web what the before image looked like and how much "extra" had to be put in. and just as often i see shots and think that it is way over the top and over done. IMO this shot is very close toeing over done.
comments and crit welcome.
