possible boring photo

Well that's what i thought (title) but have had it on my hd for a bit and when i have a few minutes to spare i have tried a few different things out and had some interesting outcomes, so i thought maybe someone else could come up with some ideas for it

Re: possible boring photo

No painting here, just a few histogram tweaks, replacement of sky, cloning out of sign, and burning the board. I wish I had had a few sand pails and shovels or a boat to put in and add another element of interest.

Nothing wrong with this image Palms. You just left out the flowers.

Re: possible boring photo

I knew it could be made of some interest, i wish the sky had been the colour you both have used when we were there !

Funny thing you mention flowers Steve i was out in the garden today and took a few snaps ( trying to catch the robins but they saw the camera and flew off ) but breathe easy thay werent that good ( the flowers that is )

Re: possible boring photo

Janet, your photo could have been taken anywhere about 20 miles south of me. :-)

Re: possible boring photo

To me the sky looked ominous, especially the hail clouds way off in the distance, so I used it for effect

Every time I've driven across Kansas, I've been in this kind of weather. I hope your kite flyers have enough sense to get in out of the storm.
