    this is the original so you can see how some judicious editing improved it, I think.
    Darkened the door so it didn't pull attention from his face.
    lightened his face and torso so it looked like he was in a ray of sun.
    darkened the walls
    added saturation, sharpened selectively

    all-in-all did what Mother Nature would have done if she cared at all.
    Thanks for looking and saying things.

    What I like is the chance to provide the elements with enough freedom and mystery that the viewer can cobble the elements together with some imagination to create the viewer's own story.
    IMO, a successful photo should draw the viewer in and engage the viewer in crafting the story, the meaning.
    The technical details should add to the reality and never distract from the viewer's involvement.
     
  7. you got a good eye Lew, well captured and PPed
     
  8. A story for sure--both told and untold! Love the subtle editing--all for the good.
     
  9. Thanks for posting the original too.
     
  10. I like the photograph...it's very well framed.
