Post Editing

I'm not a fan of post editing. It's one more step. 
One more thing I have to find time to do.
It's easier to try to get the right shot to start with.
Or lower expectations. *teehee*
Today I was a bit out of town running an errand with a friend when I asked her to pull over.
It was too beautiful to just drive past. 
And when I got this shot, I was in love.
And then l I did a little post editing.
OK, so I guess I'm going to have to make time for this.
The first shot was pretty cool, but a little editing- and the photo looks like it's been in a drawer for 50 years.
It fits the landscape. I think I love it more.

Did I mention I love our desert? We're going back to this spot to take some family photos.
Breadwinner just doesn't know it yet. *wink*
Which one do you like better?
I'm linking up with Krystina at Lollipops this week for

Great job on the photo! What camera do you use? I like the second one btw... Prettier skies & better coloring in the canyon.

Great shot. The texture of the ground looks so interesting with the smooth blue sky and puffy clouds. Nice job on adding depth with the color. :)

I LOVE it. I don't naturally have an eye for photography and I don't have an eye for editing, but I love seeing what other people can do. And your's is beautiful. The desert does look beautiful. Maybe even worth visiting instead of a spa. Maybe.
