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.This is what his photo looks like. Can you say Photoshopped?
The 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!Another angle of the same volcano, again truly visible only when the Snapseed filter had been applied to it. A ‘before’ shot so you can see the difference; this is the best definition of the volcano I could achieve with Photoshop adjustments.Of 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.The tombs at a different church.The stone part of the second church.Then 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.Even the diner in town got a touch of Snapseed drama.My favourite photo app changes all the time, but for 2018 it appears to be Snapseed!More of the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Changes.
