I took this photo just a couple months after getting my first camera. I was probably still using the Full Auto setting then. I cropped it quite a bit, and adjusted the perspective so it would look like I was shooting straight on instead of up. I didn't like the plain looking brick so I desaturated it quite a bit, and increased the contrast some. Finally, I used the Unsharp Mask tool because the words on the alarm and the leaves were a little blurry.
