I think I'm finally getting somewhere with my processing. For quite a while now I have been dissatisfied with the final appearance of my images: I got bored with that neat, "perfect" look and felt it didn't do justice conveying how I felt about the subject of my images. I wanted to achieve a bolder, moodier and darker style; I've had quite a clear notion in my mind of what I was looking for and I bought/installed quite a few iPhone photo editing apps searching for filters and presets that would help me achieve that look. Nothing grabbed me! On the contrary, there was very little I'd want to use at all. Then, on sheer impulse I paid a closer attention to what Snapseed has to offer. Snapseed is the very first app I installed; it is free and is one of the most popular and widely used photo editing apps out there. I realized it does have a good potential to help me develop the desired editing style. The main Snapseed tools I used for the above images are Vintage and Glamour Glow. I feel quite relieved, happy and newly inspired now I've found myself on the right track for my postprocessing.
