Edit Me - 7.22.11

My Reflection of Something
Disclaimer: This is not my photo. I did not take it.
Copyright belongs to the original photographer.


My edit:

My steps in pse8:
-I actually opened the photo in ACR first to adjust warmth and exposure.
-stretch canvas and crop
-screen layer @ 25%
-high pass filter
-remove color cast from bucket on legs
-Fire Ants, tweaked
-edge burn

My thoughts: After last week's disastrous edge burn, I made myself re-learn how to make a soft vignette. I am so glad I did that! Also, I haven't stretched a canvas in awhile, so I am unsure if it looks natural.

Your thoughts?

I love this sunny, cheerful edit! I think you did a good job stretching the canvas... that is my favorite trick lately, haha. Had I not known what the original looked like I would have never noticed!
