I have 2versions, the first was when I was still in the process of imaging, and I just wanted to see how it looked. So I didn’t spend much time in processing. I ended up really liking this version, but didn’t remember how I processed it. DAMN!
the 2nd is after I finished imaging. Still like it, but I like the color of the first much better.
Shoot, don’t have the 2nd saved as JPEG. I’m in Phoenix now, I’ll update the post later with the “final” version.
I think I like the first one better. It’s just me though so take that with a grain of salt. I like the variations in color. Adding a little contrast to that one might get you where you are in the second one without losing those tonal changes. I think it’s the cream colors out on the edge that is grabbing my eye.
