I would love to take you along with me on my travels to being a better photographer. I’m attaching a shot I took in Ibiza, tweaked into different images. I’m throwing a challenge out there, how would you edit this, what would you add / leave out. How about doing your own edit and explain how you did it? Quirky? Traditional?

Each week I want to share a photography related post, it would be great if you can
