I tried starting this on the big forum, but it quickly went nowhere, despite interest. Basically, we all have pics that we can't do much with due to compositional issues or just plain hitting a creative wall.
I was figuring we could post those pics for some fun to see what others can do with it using their tools and imagination, or seeing the results of just giving up and pushing as far as it can go.
The first is a pic I took in Cauterets, France, using my WB650 while mountain biking. Owing to the fact that I was busy trying to not fall off the chair and also a narrower margin for error with the 650, I came up with something I didn't totally like, but it was a one-time shot. Others turned out well.
So I gave up and decided to Silver Efex it and push it towards something of a style in some old paintings I had at home. I think a bit comical, really, but somehow pleasing at the same time.
