Welcome to my first After-Before Friday post! (Like my catchy post header?) Yup, I know the title is reversed, but I figured I would post my better photo first, followed by the original. And, yup, I know there’s no catchy alliteration as with Wordless Wednesday or Silent Sunday, though there are “f’s” in after, before, and Friday! (If any of you can come up with a better title, please chime in.)
I always enjoy before-and-after photos. It’s interesting to see the creative post-processing choices of others and it’s a wonderful way to learn what can make photos better. Currently, I post-process to correct my exposure mistakes (and there are many). But as my skills with my camera improve (fingers crossed), I envision using post-processing to apply different creative choices to my photos. So I guess these posts will be a gauge of my progress.
Note: I’ve been thinking about turning this into a weekly challenge at some point. Until then, if you want to “unofficially” participate, feel free to create your own after/before post and leave your link in a comment here.

Frozen. Completely frozen out to the jetty and the two lighthouses at either end. People came with their dogs in tow to walk on the water, sit on the jetty, and watch the sunset. Unfortunately, the sky was mostly cloud-filled and the sunset turned out to be less than spectacular (and therefore so did those pictures), but this one picture made up for that.
