Before & After - Flowerbox

I haven't shown off any of my sweet editing skillz lately, and I really wanted to. This is one of my favorites - it was me teaching myself how to clone and heal using LR3 (of which my trial version has sadly expired). After editing in LR3, I brought the photo into pse (borrowing my dad's computer) and ran CoffeeShop's Sunkissed Action. I dialed down most of the layers, and really just left a hint of sunflare.

Before:

After:




I'm finding it very hard to blog while on the road for work, due to a combination of poor internet at hotels, lack of time to write, and an unwelcome sinus infection. I also haven't been able to read any blogs for a week. The thought of opening my reader and finding 600+ unread posts just makes me shudder.

I'll be back around soon.

I really love what you've done...absolutely beautiful. BTW, I've been where you are, but mine seems to pile up even quicker. If you need to delete and focus on emails first...that's understandable.
