Shoot and Edit–Week 5 Edit

So… I had no idea what to do with this.  Winking smile

But, played around a bit, and actually like the result!

I first adjusted it in Camera Raw.

Then, cloned out the water spot, and the blue in the right bottom corner.  Did a Gaussian blur – and erased it from the hearts.

I ran PW’s Seventies action.  High Pass filter.  Then, a “Vanilla Pop” action… I don’t remember where it came from.

So here’s the before:

And the after:

So, what do you think?  I love how the red just pops out now.  Smile

  5. I am AFRAID to go to Ashley's site, because then I might just need to become schooled on my camera and editting. I'm not ready. You can't make me!
    hehe.
    Anyhow, I like how the colours have popped and yet the background looks like a true white at the same time. Now the picture makes the eye spend more time looking at it as it picks out the details.
