Before and after part 1

Sometimes pictures taken with my cell phone look good as they are and sometimes they just cry out to be altered.

This one is a prime example.

I loved mother natures arrangement in this field but it looks rather flat, the sky is washed out and the golden arches, telephone poles and buildings take away from an otherwise perfectly pretty scene.


I played around with it in the phone's editing section and it made the wildflowers stand out a bit more but it also emphasized the telephone pole and McDonald's golden arches.


On to photoshop elements. I added blue in the sky I cloned out the distractions and I added a canvas texture.  Yep, now I'm satisfied.


Happy September everyone.

Yes, I agree! Your own edits make the picture much more beautiful!! The last one is much prettier.

The colors really pop in the edited version!

much better in the edit, but the phone did do a good clean up. I think the phones do better on objects than plants or something like this. of course if it is the 900 dollar phone it would do the grass to...
