A Bridge In Brugge

A Bridge in Brugge, Belgium

As I've been moving my photos from Aperture to Lightroom, I've been reliving days of travels past. I fiddled about some with an "I was here" shot from the quaint town of Brugge in Belgium, with no real notion of where I'd end up with the photo.

I experimented with effects, textures, color layers. Just pure fun tinkering with sliders and tools. The end result is the painterly, vintage-y photo above. How do you experiment with photos?
