Snapseed’s ‘Drama’ Filter Applied to Cholula, Mexico

We headed over to Cholula dying to see the magnificent volcano looming over a yellow colonial church.

But when we got there the volcano was nowhere to be seen.

So Al ended up taking a photo of the advertising of the church and volcano.Al taking a photo of the advertising of the church with the volcano looming over it in Cholula, MexicoThis is what his photo looks like. Can you say Photoshopped?
Al's photo of the advertising of the church with the volcano looming over it in Cholula, MexicoThe volcano was barely visible in the sky, and appeared non-existent on my camera screen. ‘Is it there or isn’t it?’ I tried a variety of options within my camera settings and nothing made it show up. Then I tried Snapseed’s ‘Drama’ filter on my iPad and suddenly the volcano popped up!Photo of volcano in Cholula , Mexico, run through the drama filter photo app SnapseedAnother angle of the same volcano, again truly visible only when the Snapseed filter had been applied to it. Photo of the actual volcano in Cholula, Mexico, run through the photo app SnapseedA ‘before’ shot so you can see the difference; this is the best definition of the volcano I could achieve with Photoshop adjustments.Puebla: Actual photo of Popo VolcanoOf course, after the success of the volcano I had to see how the churches of Cholula fared in Snapseed. The yellow church in the advertising feature, and below, gets its great vantage point by being built on the top of a huge pyramid.One of the yellow churches in Cholula, Mexico, run through the photo app SnapseedThe tombs at a different church.Tombs at one of the yellow churches in Cholula, Mexico, run through the photo app SnapseedThe stone part of the second church.Agave in front of a church in Cholula, Mexico, run through the photo app SnapseedThen there was the ‘largest pyramid in the world’ that they built the yellow church on top of. Hmmm, from what I’ve read, and what I see here, I can only assume that some of the stones from the pyramid were stolen to build the church above.Stairs at the Pyramid in Cholula , Mexico, run through the photo app SnapseedEven the diner in town got a touch of Snapseed drama.Condiments in a diner in Cholula , Mexico, run through the photo app SnapseedMy favourite photo app changes all the time, but for 2018 it appears to be Snapseed!Kitchen in a diner in Cholula , Mexico, run through the photo app SnapseedMore of the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Changes.
