I took the liberty of giving this an artful crop and touch of contrast, just to bring the colors out more. For transparency’s sake, the original, unedited version is below the fold.

Sad, no matter how you look at it.

    Victoria I like your photo and find that I often try to frame pictures between two pipes or pieces of wood. If I were going to make any changes I might saturate the color. Now if I was capable I would make it b/w with only the rainbow in vivid color. ;-) ;-)

      Thank you for your encouragement! I took this with my iPhone (4S) and I haven’t really mastered any editing skills with it so far. I agree with you that a blot pop of color on B&W can be a really good tool.

        These phones are amazing. I should just carry around a rotary phone for all the apps. I don’t use. LOL

        If you can upload your pics to Flickr there is an app. that is fun to play with. I saturated this photo and then did a little more color enhancements.
