So… the picture below has been one of my favorite images for a long time. However, I think I took it at a time I wasn’t super comfortable with post-processing my images in the digital darkroom. Last night, I decided to play with a few of my favorite images… I probably spent a minute editing this image. I increased saturation and the vibrance of colors just a bit. I pulled out the blacks and I increased the ‘brightness’ of the overall image. I could have cropped it differently then the way I framed it in my lens… but I really like the open space of grace next to him. I just love this little guy. Don’t you?
