Here is the original:
And here is my edited version:
I was having so much fun editing this picture that I kind of forgot all the steps I took to get the end result. I do know that I used a storyboard from Rita at The CoffeeShop Blog. I slightly desaturated the photo, used a slight fading action, and sharpened it. But like I said, there were other things that I did, but I lost track.
My goal was to make this photo feel timeless. The vintage camera really set the stage for the photo and I liked the overall composition. I thought the trees in the background really helped add interest to it.
What do you think?
