Photo manipulation

And old service station, before and after

dropcaplmost all pictures can benefit from some enhancement. Pictures shot under less than ideal lighting conditions always benefit from enhancement. In most enhancement manipulation, you are not creating a new picture, you are re-interpreting existing information, much like editing a story. Think of it as correcting visual grammar.

I shot the old filling station late in the evening after the sun had gone down when the colors were flat. Mess around with a few pixels and see what you get.

old service station before and after

The old filling station in Kingsland, Arkansas before and after. The enhanced image tells the story much better.
