Edit Me - 3.18.11

The past couple of weeks, i heart faces has been running their Fix It Friday challenge in their online community. I'm not a part of this community, which is why I haven't posted a FIF edit in a couple of weeks. I know, it's a free community, there's no reason NOT to join. I just have so many sites that I already have to log in to access, and I really don't feel like having yet another username and password.

But I am addicted to photo editing! Sadly, I don't have any subjects to photograph, so I have no people photos to edit. I can only edit so many flower or snow or Scrabble tile photos before I just want to throw up from the repetitiveness of it.

Thank goodness that I found a new blog: Ashley... plus three! She just started a new photo editing challenge called Edit Me. Regular people like you and me can submit photos, not just the professionals.

Here is this week's SOOC shot:

Here is my clean edit:
Levels, manual eye sharpening, crop, and Boost action from Pioneer Woman (converted by Rita from CoffeeShop)

Here is my first color edit:
A spicy, autumn-y feel.

My second color edit:
A vintage-y feel.

My b&w edit:

Disclaimer: This is not my photo. I did not take it.

I am hoping to get my iPhoneography post up tonight, since I missed it last week. Be on the lookout for that! And Color Splash Sunday is planned to take place as usual tomorrow morning. Additionally, I do still owe my readers a GINORMOUS wedding update, which I hope to post asap, especially because I've been doing a little bit here and there on a daily basis. Stay tuned, bloggy friends!

Hi Amy! Thanks so much for linking up, I'm so happy to have found a new blog! Your edits are beautiful, I think the 2nd with the autumn feel is my favorite. I would love for you to submit a photo...a flower or something like you mentioned above. Everyone is sending in little kid shots which are great but that will get old too! :) email me at ashleyplus3 (at) yahoo (dot) com if you want to send one in. Stop by tomorrow to see if Tina picked you as the winner! XO
