This is the view from my home garden at night time.
I first started editing this image in photoshop elements 9, in 2011. I’d not long got my computer software and I was fairly new to photo editing.
Today, about 6 years later, I decided to finish it off. I thought about removing the white/grey edges left behind by the Background Eraser tools in the early versions of Photoshop elements which appear in the silhouette of the foliage and garden hedges, after trying out the edits I realised that the limitations and inadequacy of the older photo editing software tools in this instance have added light and midtone to my photograph, so I left it be.
Although some critics will consider this to be a flaw in my image, I don’t. Instead I choose to see it as a picture of a learning process or a photograph of a stage in the development of digital technology. I may not ever produce work like this again.
