Listen to the missus

There's a story behind this one. I spent about 1 hr trying to get that perfect photo of these 3 buildings (the 2 temples plus the spinning wheel in the background). I took about 20 photos from another perspective wasting about 30 seconds for each photo (15 seconds for the exposure + 15 seconds for the in camera noise reduction). I just wasn't happy with the photos I had from that perspective. Disgruntled I sat down and thought what am I doing wrong. Whilst sitting down, it was not until the missus pointed out to me "why don't you just take a photo from here?". I listened to her thinking nothing of it and it turned out to be gold :).

 

So the lesson I've learnt from this one is to consider another perspective, consider the opinion of another even if you don't agree with it. And the advice may lead to you creating something magical.

 

Photo was processed using basic Lightroom controls and cleaned up in Photoshop. In general, warmth was added via an adjustment to the white balance, the vertical perspective was tweaked and the image was slightly sharpened. Intentionally left the distortion in there
