I have always loved gemstones, rocks and the like. As kids we used to grow ‘rock’ gardens all the time. I did a whole post on some beautiful gem photography
and find the subject endlessly fascinating. I really wanted this image to impart the beauty that I originally had witnessed. From the ‘before’ you would never know the great depth, texture and luminance that was present. I feel the ‘after’ really gives it a second chance.
I will be editing a photo a day for the remainder of 2012::Project MMXII, this is my ‘after’, you can view the ‘before’ here.
P.S. I will email the winners of last weeks contest and hopefully we can all see what creative goodness they got themselves into!
