Electricity (sanded and polished)
This is an edited version of a previous upload. I used to have a resistance to cropping and editing photos. I had a "purist" view of leaving an image as the camera captured it. From the thousands of photos I have seen on Flickr I have had a change of heart and see photography as an artform where the image that comes out of the camera is not the finished product. Like a carpenter sanding the rough edges off a unique piece of furniture, a photographer sometimes needs to remove the rough edges of a photo to bring out its true beauty.
