This picture was taken outside an old cathedral in Lisbon, so it's part of my Lisbon series. Like the photos in my previous post, this was also taken in the golden hour. I was not happy with the original image, so I wasn't going to include it in my posts. Also, discouraged by my recent failure to save another unsatisfactory photo with artistic effects, I wasn't going to try it with this photo.
But then something changed my mind today. I finally decided to give it a chance. I thought, if it doesn't work out, just throw it away. It won't hurt trying, and more practice is always a good thing. So out came my editing tools, and after trying something different this time, I arrived at something that pleased my eye.
Let me know what you think of it, and as always, I cherish your honest feedback. To see the details of the edited image, you need to view it on a computer.
For comparison, here is the original photo that I started with.
Once again, my wonderful image editing tools gave this failing photo a second chance, and I am very grateful to have them.
