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!
