Oh Buoy, It's Cold

Sorry for the dumb title, but sometimes these things get the best of me.  This image was originally destined for the recycle bin when I first looked at it, but upon a second review and some processing, I ended up making it into something I like.  For this very reason, I rarely delete photos immediately when I first load them on the computer.  Sometimes it takes a second or third look before I see an image’s true potential.

For this image, it just need some desaturation and some heavy vignetting to get to the vision I originally had when I pressed the shutter.  Now this philosophy means I have a lot of images on my hard drive that I’ll probably never process or post, but it does provide the opportunity to review older shoots, and pull out a few gems that may have eluded me the first time around.  Please click on the image for a larger view.
