Weekly Photo Challenge – In the Background

“Photoshop your life.  Touch up the edges, adjust the tones, blur out the background and crop people out.”

I love the concept of today’s quote – wouldn’t it be nice if we could just photoshop whatever we wanted to change in our lives ?!  Personally there’s very little I would change given the option, but it would be nice to know it was possible 🙂

This week we’ve been challenged to focus on the observed rather than the observer.  My vision with this image was to see the scene as the young woman was seeing it.  Clearly she was deep in thought as she prepared for her musical performance.  In her mind was she practicing her piece, or perhaps hoping for the arrival of someone special? Maybe she was simply wishing she was outside enjoying the lovely summer’s day. 

Since we’re focused on photoshopping, I’ve presented an alternative version with a very different mood.  So which do you prefer, and why?
