Outdoor Shoot Preview (v3)

Blame it on my OCD nature but once I decided to touch up the photos, I couldn’t stop till I got them right (or at least as “right” as I could).  So this is the 3rd time I’m reposting the photos.  Realised I used too many “dark edges” effect in version 2 of this post.. so I redid all the photos.  This time, I also correct the contrast, lighting, colour and saturation of the pics, and rendered some lighting effect where I thought might be nice.  Of course, there was the usual cropping to remove the actual photographer’s arm/bag/flash, pillars, etc.

L: Am v.proud of this photo ‘cos the colour was originally kinda bluish/greyish but I managed to correct it.  Yes, yes, no big deal for some but a big deal for my 3rd photoshop attempt.
