It’s time for May’s One Photo Focus Photo Challenge. One Photo Focus is a photography challenge hosted by Stacy Fischer at Visual Venturing. The participants in this challenge edit the same image and share it on the One Photo Focus Forum. You can get more information and join the One Photo Focus monthly challenge at Stacy Fisher’s Visual Venturing. Thanks to Julie Powell for letting us practice on her photo.

First, I cropped the photo to place more emphasis on the building. Next, I used Macphum’s Snapheal to remove the branches that were sticking out and to make the tree look healthier. Next, I used the Fotor app to add some clouds. I tried several other things; but I decided to go with simplicity this time. I’ll share one of my attempts that didn’t work out so well next.
Try, try, try again
My original goal was to make this look like a run down building that was still loved. I wanted to add wild roses near the tree and flowers on the porch. I worked on it; but never did get it to the point that I was happy with the results.
