So I started going thru my old shots. Next month's assignment is flowers, so I focused on finding those. I found these from May of last year. I took a shot of a planter while Sue and I were down on the coast having lunch. The shot was overexposed and had a lousy composition ,so I considered that a throwaway. Since I don't throw anything away, I still had it in my files. I looked at it last night, and messed around in photoshop. Adjusted the levels, gave it some contrast, unsharpened the mask, and VOILA! A keeper I think...
Of course, that is just my opinion, but the point is that sometimes you just need to give something a second look, from a fresh perspective. There's no telling what you'll find.
