I wanted to show y'all the difference between my original and edited photos. The first photo is the original with no editing at all. I thought it was a nice photo. It's actually the only one I kept of the shots I took today. Something about it spoke to me.
This second shot is my "normal" edit. I didn't do much of anything to it but lighting and add the vignette. I like this fairly well.
This next one is an edit in which I used one of the effects in Perfect Effects 8. I really like the effect but I know not everyone will. I think it brings out the colors and highlights very nicely and it just looks like "fall" to me.
Which version do you like best? Why do you like that one? Are you totally against editing in photography all together or just major edits? I'm curious how everyone feels about this subject. Personally, I think there is a place for editing but it depends on the photo and how the original looks.
