When I visited my photo library to continue where I left off in last week's An Autumn Visit to the Sento Imperial Palace in Kyoto, I came across a highly-overexposed bridge shot similar to the one that I did post.

Though shooting raw affords me generous latitude to recover from exposure mistakes, overexposure at some point washes out color to pure white, from which there is no recovery. It was severely overexposed (not by mistake, actually, but as part of a bracketed-exposure sequence) so I was about to delete it from my photo archive, but first thought to give it the Funky Joy treatment in Lightroom. I liked the result.

It's garish and fake, so I'm sure it's not to everyone's taste, but then again, not much is.

And while I'm at it, in the vein of How Many Faces Can One Portrait Have? and (from 7.5 years ago) From Sunset to Moonrise with Adobe Lightroom, here's one more view from the same original:
