|The original in all its glory.|
|Number 1 with wind in the shrubbery hiding the laptop.|
|Made monochrome to hide the shrubbery blur and moved a tree!|
|Added back a little color.|
I did not try to hide his face this time. The photo when cropped is now much smaller and as a result would not be good for anything larger than a few inches in print...but I had fun(?) working on this. Tell me if you like one more than the other and as you can see, I moved some landscape to cover the laptop and a tree, and no color filters were added. You will need to click on photos to enlarge. This would not pass muster for any publication other than the web. I really appreciate those of you who were polite enough to take time to review and critique and that fact that this photo was not one in which I had vested any emotion, made it easier for me to take advice.
