First Look at Photographs Misleading

I enjoy my days out shooting with my friends. But before I can even upload my images many images are posted online. Then I upload my pictures, and I am a bit disappointed in my work. I close up the computer and take care of all kinds of other things.

A interesting thing happens when I next see the pictures. I weed out the usual photos taken by others, and I like what I have captured. This may be a confidence thing or more likely my images have to grow on me.

I played around using Topaz Texture Affects on this image. Not sure which I like better.
