    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    I like the framing, although the left side isn't straight...but the photo seems to be missing a subject.

    Whether you decide you like the image or not, I think a few quick post-processing things can make it much more appealing. My forty-five second GIMP workflow consisted of levels (to bring down the soft blacks), rotate, and crop (to fix the rotation).

    Here's what I ended up with:

    I'm sure there are more little things you could do to make it "pop," but I think the levels and rotation make a huge difference.

    What do you think?
