Images And Words Week 224 - "Oops!"

Greetings from Florida!

This is Linda hosting for the very first time in this dynamic group.
The theme I have choosen will be titled “OOPS”( pls be sure theme # and ”OOPS” is in the title).
I would like you to locate a photo that you consider pretty bad, as in a photographic point of view, then breathe life into it by editing the photo in a progam of your choice.
Post the “before” and “after’ Pics” together in your presentation.
The whole idea is to realize that photos you believe are unworthy can turn out to be quite wonderful!
If this theme doesn’t tickle your fancy then choose any photo you consider an “OOPS” and post it without any changes! ( it is NOT necessary for you to include the “editing tools” that you used ..but, you can if you wish to)
This is a ‘drive by shot.’ I was a passenger in a car.
I did not get the results I had hoped for…”OOPS”

These are “condos” to the tune of $300,000 and UP! I’m not impressed!
So today I sent it to PicMonkey and breathed some life into the photo.

Pic Monkey

All that I did was add a cloud texture……fiddled with exposure and color…cropped, then resized…VOILA! THIS is MY AFTER ( thanks to PicMonkey) The photo is now salvageable and actually came out quite well.

The New Rules:

Each week we will post an original photo creatively edited or not.
All photos or collages must contain words somewhere on the image or placed in an area on the image most suitable to be seen clearly by all.
The idea behind this group is to expand our minds through our photography in a creative manner.
Photos must be your own, but the words can be someone else's as long as credit is given to the original author, unless unknown, whereby a simple "author unknown" will suffice.
Your post can either be serious, or if you'd like, comical, but never obscene .
Posts can either contain one word, sayings, statements, quotes, or full poems ... As long as the words fit the theme, it is Your choice.
All posts are to be done on your own site in a blog form
with a link back to it being left here or on Muze.
New topics will be posted on Sundays.
Posts can be made through to the following Saturday.
One post per person only please..
