Edit Me 8.12.11



My Reflection of Something
Disclaimer: This is not my photo. I did not take it.

SOOC:


My edit:


My steps in ACR:
-crop
-adjust all sliders to my liking (which basically means "increase almost everything")

My steps in pse8:
-levels
-Ashley Sisk's Nice and Easy (tweaked)
-OJS Daydream (heavily tweaked)
-aged texture from Shadowhouse Creations, multiply @ 100%
-slight Gaussian blur
-duplicate background, screen @ 15%

My thoughts: I spent entirely too much time editing this photo. It just didn't feel done at any point, so honestly... I duplicated it a few times and ran random actions. I liked this combination of actions, and then the only thing that I knew I wanted to do was add the texture.


What are YOUR thoughts?

It's like a piece of art ready for the wall

Nice frame and the texture added a vintage feel. I like how the texture helped to bring out more detail in the storm cloud.
