From a Vacation Snapshot to Wow!

On trips I take a lot of photos.  Very few make it into my list of favorites.

This photo was a throw away – typical vacation snapshot.  Too cluttered, poor composition – just something to keep in the memory book.  Here is the before – as shot in camera appearance:

Snapshot from Camera

But I was playing with HDR on some of the other photos from this day and played with this one as well.  Suddenly this photo took on a life of its own – vibrant color and interest.  I thought it would make into a great jigsaw puzzle!.

I printed it on metallic paper for the Tulare County Fair and the colors are stunning – better than the computer screen.  It is now a “keeper”
