The Power of Photoshop

The human eye adds a lot more "drama" to a picture than a camera can record. This shot is of a very romantic old farmhouse along the famous Staunton (VA)-Parkersburg (WVA) Turnpike that saw a lot of action during the Civil War. The original image if flat and disappointing (probably because it was taken on a hot summer day around noon). But with the quick selection tool in Photoshop, I was able to selectivel;y saturate different parts of the picture, turning it more into the image I had in mind when I took the picture.
