Re: Re-working old images

Health problems have prevented me from taking my cameras out for almost two years. this has given me the time to look at some of my old images which I haqve found lacking for one reason or another. the attached, are from Malta in 2015, during a week when the Island received its first rain for 8 months, or so we were told. the first shot is straight out of the camera, and records the weather quite faithfully, but it is not an image of the splendid harbour as I wish to remember it. The second image, although not a faithful record, is much more pleasing to my eye.

This is an interesting concept and I like the notion of presenting the two versions.  I really like the reworked version for a couple of reasons.  First the crop removes some foreground distractions and some uninteresting sky.  And second, the increased color saturation emphasizes the sense of place giving the scene a feeling of warm Mediterranean sun.

To my eye, you may have over cooked the sky a bit on the left half of the image.  I might suggest backing that off just a bit.
