Hey guys, just a quick question: what do you use for photo editing, and what techniques do you normally use? I use Paint.Net because it's free and I'm cheap/against torrenting things, and I usually just mess with the colours (brightness, contrast, saturation). I still have no idea what I'm doing, though, so I'm not great at it. Edited photo above, original photo below.

I don't even know what I was trying to accomplish.

So, how do you guys play around with your photos?
