Here are 5 versions of a photo I took yesterday evening–which, unbeknownst to me at the time I was taking it, features a neighbor family that was standing atop the main butte in the photo. As I hoped (once I realized they had been up there in the pic), their silhouetted figures added a cool dimension to what would have already been a pretty cool sunset photo. The moment seemed worth dramatizing with some cool photo effects, and pretentiously retro-titling the photo “What They Saw”.

The first one is the closest to the original pic (obviously). My favorite is the black and white one. Click any of the images to see it in a larger size:

What They Saw - painted
