It was a dark and stormy morning

It’s been said that the best camera is the one you have with you — heck it’s even the title of a book on iPhone photography.

Which makes sense, because you can easily stumble across a nifty scene, as I did here, and not be able to capture it if you don’t have a camera with you.

True, the scene didn’t exactly look like that. I did enhance the dramatic using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2, to pretty good effect, I think.

But back to the point, carrying a camera with you will enable you to catch these unexpected scenes, and then take them back to your digital darkroom and explore the artistic possibilities.

I decided to take a scan through some photos from earlier this year. This one from our summer vacation stuck with me as one that I could play with.

And I did. Using Lightroom again. A bit of Sepia. A bit of dodging and burning, and I’m rather pleased with the result.

There’s an easter egg in this shot, though I didn’t notice it until I was finished editing! See if you can find it 🙂
