The photo was taken with Fotor HDR app, which takes two photos at two different exposures. I generally don't think about what I want to do with the photo until I come home and look at it for awhile. After merging the exposures, I transfer the image to my iPad mini. What I want to do with this image, and with all my images is to create a sense of nostalgia or a memory; or to evoke an emotion of some kind. I need to create an atmosphere that isn't necessarily available when I took the picture, so I set about making that atmosphere by using the many available apps. I bring the image into Snapseed. I'm particularly fond of the new HDRscape feature in Snapseed, but tone it down a little. I will also use the Center Focus feature. I then take the image into ShockMyPic or Tangled FX then into Blender to blend with the previous version. Please note, that if you use ShockMyPic, you will need to bring the size back to its original with an app such as Big Photo.
I then bring the image into Superimpose and blend and mask with textures that I have purchased from Distressed Textures. From there I use Distressed FX app to apply more textures and then into PhotoToaster for some additional editing until I feel good about what I've created.
