    Honestly, i would leave the photo alone at about step 8. Not step 9 and beyond, it just looks too bright. The step 9 photo has more richer colors and life in them as oppose to the last 1 with very little color besides white and black. Just leaving some constructive criticism.

  • ardit dafku

    wait lemme correct myself “The step 9 photo has more richer colors” I ment to say step 8 lol
