why i don't do sooc

usually, i like a shot...but will tinker with it...just the basics: curves, maybe a touch of contrast and/or saturation if called for...crop the shot down a little if i left too much room on camera...each step seems minor, but when i click back to the original in gimp, then back to the 'final'...the difference is drastic.


i didn't give myself the chance this time. didn't open this up in anything but XnView (reminds me of ACDSee from back in the day -- and is free for non commercial use).


oh, this is a clothesline from my grandparents' farm in waterbury. clothes are on said line.
