Challenge #14 in the Language Of Light series. Hosted by Deleted pending purge.
Challenge has finished
Sometimes you are just a tad late with a trigger. Or you forgot to switch back from Macro to Normal mode. Perhaps you shot something using wrong White Balance, or used an inadequate Program Mode. Maybe it was just badly framed... Let's see how you deal with botched photos to save what can be saved. Show us such pictures spliced together: the ORIGINAL and the REPAIRED. If you want, describe what you have done to salvage the shot. Please read carefully and observe all of the rules!

Submitted: Sunday, 1st April, 2012 05:36 (GMT)
Taken: Friday, 8th May, 2009
Focal length: 16 mm
Shutter speed: 13 sec
Aperture: F5
ISO: 200
Notes: I left tripod at home and camera was resting at parapet of Top of the Rock: wrong composition, horizon was out of level, and l set aperture at f/22 coz l wanted everything on focus (lol, not necessary at all as whole scene was veeeery far from the camera) that means poor contrast and details due strong interference. Couple years late I recycled the pic with rotation, croping, S shape 'curve', levels adjustment and a bit of sharpening.
