This photo crop came to be, simply because I had some extra time on my hands and decided to play with a photo in the ribbet editor.
I had this photo from the White Rock Farmer’s Market. It was a quick snap as I was just trying to capture the flavor of the market and the things you might see there like… jewelry, bags, belts and other craft items.
Fortunately, it was sharp enough that I could cropped into the most interesting part of the photo… the head, but it was still a blah photo with the distracting color of the blue tent behind as well as that pole coming out of her head. So… I took the pole out. But… it still needed something.
Time to play! I tried black and white, but that did not appeal to me, so I did selective coloring and then embellished it with the flowery graphic in the lower right corner, a grunge frame as well as text… and this is my final image.
All in all, I think it makes for a more interesting and quirky image.
