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.
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.
