Cape Foulwind, just south of Westport, West Coast, New Zealand

Another photo from our New Zealand trip.  I’ve gotten a few photography books recently, and I’m trying to expand my post-processing knowledge.  I am usually confident that I can take pretty good photos, but I often feel as though my skills are lacking as I take it from the camera to the computer.  This is a photo that I didn’t really like when I saw it on the screen at first, but I played with it today and I think it turned out much better; more true to what I was seeing.  As much as I don’t like having to spend much time in front of the computer, I have to get better at this so that I can get my photos to “pop” (cheeseball saying, but you know what I mean) and not spend too much time trying to do so!
