BreakingModern — Ok I know, I know, you’re looking at today’s headline and may think I’m taking a moment to gloat about my favorite NFL team, the Green Bay Packers, recently defeating the New England Patriots. Well, I’m not this time. #GoPackGo!
Let’s take a look at the photo Ray took while on a hike in the California Bay Area. Greer mentioned that he did his touch up in the stock HTC photo editor. From the look of it, I’d like to say that the color saturation was adjusted as well as the brightness. The M8 did a great job of capturing the fine details of the subject and surrounding objects. The grain in the wood is clearly visible, as well as the individual blades of grass in the foreground.
Greer may not realize this, but he actually has two great images in that one capture. First, the shot that we’re sharing here on BreakingModern. The second would be a tightly cropped version — imagine the above photo with the background cropped out. This would make the photo more like a macro shot, which would be its own version of excellent.
Gorgeous photo, Ray. All captured during a hike in the Bay Area.
