Did this photo end up exactly what I had in mind when I took the shots? No. Did the sepia and artificial lens blur get added to compensate for some flaws in the photo? Certainly.
Do I like the end result? Well, I do and that’s why I posted it. I learned a lot from the post processing work on this one and came away with some great ideas on how to take this kind of shot next time. The details that I see that bother me will always be there in the back of my mind, but I am like that with any photo. I tend to be my biggest critic.
The thing for me is to go ahead and post the work that I am happy with despite some of my misgivings concerning some of the “technical” flaws.
