Another "edit me" challenge, to get me into my photoshop elements and hopefully through trial and error, figure a few things out. It's a slow take for me. Practice practice, that's what I (they) say.
Here is the original photo. I don't see much wrong with this, but I did attempt an edit
My edited shot
~ first I cropped the photo
~ added a duplicate layer, set to soft light 100% opacity
~did a slight levels adjustment
~did a slight hue/saturation adjustment
~Added Jessica Drossin Illumination texture, star spangled, at soft light 100% opacity
~Added Jill Wellington's bokeh#38, soft light at 52 % opacity
That's it for this week. If I knew more, I would somehow change the bright white from the pansy, but as they say, "it is what it is"
Head over to edit me challenge, and see what the other super creative folks have done with the edit.
