Well, when you flub the shot ...

    M 240, Leica R 35-70mm F4. Post with Picassa.

    I hadn't noticed the aperture set to f22 when taking the shot. The far left trees had gone soft from diffraction, ugh.

    Nothing else from the walk was worth working with though, and there was something I liked about this shot.

    So if the edge was soft, go with it. A lomography filter ("lomo-ish") in Picassa pushed that further and to all edges, pushed the color and contrast, and added the vignetting. A graduated top-shading finished it off.

    I don't usually go for "heavily processed," but I like the results here. Probably over-the-top but compensating an under-the-bridge theme.
