This is the first image I see when I open up my photos of the Camino. It is the first picture I took in Spain. We had just got off the airplane in Madrid, found out way to the Subway and we were heading to the Train Station. It’s a crappy photo. I don’t know why I kept it and any other workflow would have had it gone in a second. But I kept it.
Must be because I love subways. The city I live in, Hamilton, does not have one. Toronto, “just up the road” has a pretty big one. So does Montreal where I think I first rode on one. At least the first one I remember.
Today I found something to do with it.
Until now most of my editing has been done in Lightroom 5. Today I opened my old copy of Photoshop Elements. 2.0. Yep, it’s very old. Somewhere along the line I had a pirated copy of the original Photoshop but never quite put the time into learning it so never got myself a full version. I only got PE 2 because I was studying web-design and I got it at a good price and enjoyed the course.
So, to make a long story short…. here are some photos of a crappy shot made artsy. Hope you enjoy.

Please let me know what you think. I might do some more creative stuff with some of my photos. Do you like modified photos or is the raw stuff what you like better.
Thanks and Adios.
