For some reason I really like the way this edit turned out. The original photo was OK but nothing special.
I changed the colors of both the sky and the stoplight casing to make them as close to complimentary as I could and added a texture and vignette.
This makes the image ‘pop’ (technical term) but that on its own is not enough, some depth is also required.
I think it is the looped cable that really makes the original composition work but I could well be wrong.
