On little changes and the slow grasp of icy fingers

In the spirit of dialing back my tendency to over-edit, I’ve changed only the Stackables filter on this shot.

The changes are subtle. The question is; do they alter perception and mood sufficiently to make them worthwhile?

I feel the grip of winter increasing from the first to last shot. But I would, wouldn’t I?

  2. I can barely discern the differences though the top photo is brighter than the last one. As to whether those differences are “worth it,” I think only the artist can make that decision.

    Winter? For once, I am glad to be here in the US.

  3. Lovely photos. Love the rich colours. Hope you are warm and dry where you are. We have had some rain and the hills are just starting to turn green. Just as well. It would have meant a hard spring and summer for the farmers here.

    • Thanks Raewyn. It’s turned very windy and wet here, and I’m feeling very fortunate to be in a warm house. Hope you are well and staying cozy. It looks like we’ll all be in for a few more wet, cold days.

  4. I like the shadows created with the effect. I haven’t heard of snapseed, is it a newer program? I’m on the hunt for a new photo editing program, but I am not terribly tech literate.
