So I decided to take my photo "Traffic" and re-edit it a bit. Now my first edit was representational of the scene I saw, this edit is just for fun, I use it for my desktop background (the deep black space at the top of the image is great for my folders and documents). What do you think of it? Do you often times find yourself going back and editing old photos?

Here is the first edit of the photo (representation of what I saw)

Here is my re-edit

I didn't embed the pictures because I didn't want to take up a ton of space and such.

Very nice. The second edit looks great.

the things you are doing with that 18-55 really blows me away evey time I see. İt makes me wanna send you a 24-70 or a 1.4 prime as a present. just to see what mirracles you will shoot.:)

you are the exact proof of the known statement and I say to everyone usually. It is never the gear, all you your eyes, skills and talent....

thanks for being with us.

Serdar,

Thank-you so much for the kind words. I really appreciate it and it helps to keep me motivated with photography.

The 18-55 has been pretty good. I actually did buy a 24-70 2.8L about a week after I took this photo though. I haven't really had a chance to use it yet because of school but I'll be sure to use it soon. Also, still feel free to send me a 1.4 prime as a present :lol: haha.
