Another quilt photo

Here is my photoshopped picture from the raw photograph that was the base for the photograph in my prior post.
_MG_9630-webIs there a difference?  Once a decent photograph has been shot, is the extra editing worth it for use on the web?  I’m going to publish this post so I can compare the two pictures more easily.  What do you think? Is photoshop for a photograph intended for use on the web worth the effort?

BTW, I have noted that I need to check the background for extraneous, unwanted objects before snapping a photograph…it is all about composition.

    I’m with you. There was a gathering around me as I was correcting the color booing my choices, as I like the colors deeper and darker, but this one, which was everyone else’s consensus, is technically better and more true, as once the white is true to life all the other colors are allegedly accurate. Not sure I’ll make this much effort in the future…thinking I’ll take a good photograph and pay more attention to the composition in the future, but we shall see. I have a photographing art class next Saturday so…
