The original unedited image came up on my desktop background today. It was washed out and kinda poor.
Then I realized that it could, with a little work in a few apps, turn into a reasonable image. I like it.
I used Snapseed to adjust the colour / saturation and reduce the haze. And crop. Then off to Brushstroke to work on the treatment.
It’s been a while since I shared my recent work here — my bad. But here’s and update:

There’s a lot of time and effort spent making video games look good. I often take screen shots of the scenes I like. Then I start to play with them – in this case importing the image from my PC to my iPad, then running it through Waterlogue.

Waterlogue is a very cool iPad / iPhone app that basically a watercolour filter for your images. And it works very very nicely!
I crawled through my image archive and grabbed a few good shots, and some OK shots, and I really like the way they turned out.
As well, I thought I’d just try taking a picture of the floor, and even it looked better.

Waterlogue is $2.99 in the App Store.
