I got some more pictures while on my break yesterday.

Kindly allow me to recommend Snapseed. It's like Adobe Lightroom for your phone. This is 5 minutes worth of tweaking.

Ohhhhh the lake looks more like how it's supposed to look in this one ! I was getting irritated that the quick pictures I was taking never really did it justice so I'll have to look into this app. Thanks :)

My workflow:

1) Crop to rule of thirds

2) Auto-adjust

3) (boost saturation because I'm a little colorblind and tend to go crazy)

4) tweak highlights and shadows to improve them but not to the point of clipping

5) white balance

OPTIONAL: HDR (gotta be careful, it gets dumb)

OPTIONAL: shitty instagram filters (I'm prone to "glamour glow")

I really love the Thomas Kinkade on a bad trip look you get from going overboard playing with HDR.

I mean, how can you not love this stuff?

It's like those polaroid albums full of accidental pictures of ghosts.
