Before and After

I finally took some pictures tonight.  Just for the fun of it.  And you know what?  It was fun.  I was rounding up some of my kiddos for bedtime, and ended up walking through my backyard - what a sight!  The storm clouds were brewing, and just look at the picture I snapped of the back of our house:

Just look at that beautiful light!  I decided to hop out to the front yard and snap a shot of some of my roses growing there.  Here's the SOOC photo - flat and boring.  So (of course) I spent some time playing with it after the kids were in bed.

I decided to go with the "antiqued" look for this pretty little rose.  And then I played with the composition and added some pop with a texture layer.  Isn't it pretty?  I just might be getting back on the proverbial horse.  Giddyup.

Call me crazy, but I thought that rose was gorgeous before you worked it over...either way, good stuff.

Luke, I guess that makes you the pot, and me the kettle.

I like the framing of the worked-over version. Where do you learn to frame things, or is that just something innate?
