SOOC Saturday & Texture Twist

Resized for web and watermark

SOOC Saturday

I used the Black Magick 10 texture (soft light at 100% opacity) from Shadowhouse Creations on both version of this photo. For the color version, I increased the saturation of the blue tones and then burned the edges on the left side.

For the B&W version, I decreased the brightness and increased the contrast, and ended with a soft vignette on linear burn at 40% opacity.

I think the texture works better on the black and white version, so that's what I am submitting into Kristy's Texture Twist this weekend.

No Texture Twist this weekend because Kristy flew home to be with her family. So you all get to look at my pretty pictures just for fun!

Great edits! The B&W is my favorite. SOOC shot is not bad either.
