Wheatgrass! Rare photo tip post for today: How you can take a relatively boring subject and make it into the kind of image that advertisers jump at to buy?

Wheatgrass Snapshot

I took two shots here on my porch of some wheatgrass I am growing on my porch for making smoothies about 20 minutes ago. The top image is just a snapshot, and the lower one is a macro shot, up close focusing on the front blades of grass with water drops (from the morning dew – not sprayed or manipulated in any way) with very minor editing.
