Edit Me: 9.8.11

I used to put my Edit Me posts up on Fridays, but due to a few different factors, I am now going to put them up on Thursdays.

SOOC:

My edit:


My steps:
When I opened in ACR and started adjusting sliders, I added warmth but actually slid the tint slider back to the left. After doing some other adjustments, I also decreased the contrast, which is unusual for me. It just felt right.

After opening in pse8:
-straighten
-crop
-Hue/Saturation layer to adjust vibrancy of reds and greens
-PW Boost tweaked, to add some extra zing
-Ashley Sisk's Debonair tweaked
-2 rustic textures from Shadowhouse Creations, both on overlay @ 100%
-vignette

My thoughts: I like it! A lot. I'm pretty proud of myself for being able to put more creative focus on the barn. Also, I can't recommend Jerry's textures enough. They just work wonders on photos.

I love the colors in your photo, and I absolutely love your decision to decrease the contrast a bit. The vignette is a great touch. Beautiful edit, Amy!

I think this is very pretty and I like how you achieved a somewhat vintage edit and still have those blue clouds. Nicely done!

Amy said...

Beautiful edit! I love your re-composing of the photo! If I was the judge this would be one of the winners!

Thanks for stopping by! I think it was either the Florida, or Hawaii action, but I'm not completely sure about that. Sorry!
