Touch-Up Tuesday

What a busy weekend!

I've been trying to set up a rotating header.  (^ what do you think?)  It's still off-center, and I'm not sure how to fix it.  Sigh.  But, other than that, I think I like it!  :D

It's quickly getting colder here.  All the bees are out, gathering the last of the pollen.

I was able to get a pic of this one, while holding back a very interested kitten.  ;)

Here it is:

I was very happy that the bee was in focus.  ;)  I wouldn't recommend taking pictures of a bee with one hand, and holding a kitten in the other.

So, version one:

adjusted saturation levels slightly
low Cross-Process

2nd one I cropped it differently, and didn't use the Cross-Process (which I like on grass - makes it 'deeper' or something.)  Everything else stayed the same.

So, which one do you like better?

Post your favourite touch-ups at Paper ♥ Camera.

  1. Wow even the SOOC s great. My favorite is the second edit! Wonderful job!

    I love your new Header. Was it hard to do?

  2. I love the new header!! I need to change mine again, but I don't think I could ever do that.

    My fav is the second one. Cool bee shot. :) I would've let the kitten get it, and run.

    My word for today is supple. Nice. ;)

  3. I like the first edit better, the tall crop really highlights the flower and the bee, in the other one they seem lost in the grass.

    Such a cute widdle bee! XD

  4. The header looks great Adeena. And you're not kidding, AWESOME focus on the bee.

  5. I like the header. I like the first edit more; the second one doesn't seem as clear or as green or something. Not sure.

  6. WOW! I'm so jealous of your fabulous rotating header, brilliant idea! And your sooc shot & edited version are both wonderful, great color!

    PS~ to center header... try going into the edit html section on your design layout & set your header-wrapper, outer-wrapper & main-wrapper to the same width. always save design template to your computer first, then preview as you try & center... hope that helps!

  7. Your header look good! They can be so touchy when you're trying to align them!

    And your sooc shot is amazing! I think I like the vertical crop best...it feels more natural with the vertical-ness of the clover.

  8. Super cool Adeena! LOVE both edits. The deeper colors look great. I expect no less from you regarding the master juggling (cat, camera & bee), since you have 5 little ones! LOL! (Also, I love the rotating header. All the pics are great...but Becky's center pic REALLY caught my eye! Gorgeous gal!) :-) I can't even tell it's off center; I must be getting old.

  9. I really like both edits. They both look really great.
