Snapseed play

Snapseed (Not surprisingly from NIK*) is an iPad app which has become very respected and popular, and I can see why. It has one of the easiest learning curves I've tried, and yet you can do a lot with it. (Some brief demo videos.)
Here is just the first experiment I did.

This was some of the more Effect-y settings, the app will also do basic things like contrast and cropping, of course.

By the way, I hope to take some portraits around new year, that should be fun.

*NIK has some unique filtering techniques so you can apply adjustments to only the sky or a blouse, without a lot of fiddly masking-off. It's pretty amazing when it works best, and I don't think anybody else has anything like it.

Will you tell me what the heck is wrong with the first picture and how the second is an improvement.She is so beautiful that I don't want to see her nude.

Don't get me wrong, Indi is stunning, and there was nothing wrong with the picture. It was just one I picked half at random to play with.
Whether one likes the result or not doesn't matter, it was just a little experimentation.
