Here is an example of seeing a picture and making a picture - from a seemingly boring scene from the rooftop of our hotel in South Beach where I held recent my Travel Photography Workshop.
I really can't take credit for this one. Julie Johnson, one of my South Beach Workshop students, came up with the idea for a close-up of the building in the distance. After taking the top shot (as a before shot), I zoomed in for the second shot (as the after shot) and changed the color (using Hue in Photoshop) of the scene.
The idea here: you can find pictures everywhere. You just need to look for them.
Good work, Julie!
