52 weeks with Carolyn

A Theme Based Photo Blog

Week 30 #45 Full Edit


Its gardenia blooming time here in Southwest Florida and my plant just outside my lanai is full of sweet fragrant blossoms.  Like so many blooming plants, the flowering season is short, only a few weeks, so if you are lucky enough to have a plant, you enjoy every precious scented minute.

A “Full Edit” to a photo in my opinion means, give it the works.  Adjust lighting, clarity, shadows, vibrance, whites and blacks, remove distractions, boost colors, sharpen image and in this image I added a slight vignette to soften the background.

I have always enjoyed photography, but with encouragemet from family and friends over the past several years I began to realize I really love it! Belonging to this blog and a local digital photo group has challenged me to look at the beauty of the world and to enjoy capturing it with my camera.
