A New Beginning

photography by Mary Lou Jacobs

Antique Store

My image today was taken in Kewanee, IL with my Nikon D80. Although I like the composition in this image it was just an ordinary image lacking some punch. This is where Steve Rich’s Before and After Tutorial comes in. It got the punch I was looking for and more!!
