Edit Me: Week 26

This week's Edit Me photo was supplied by Alita. Honestly, I fell in love with this photo while editing it.  I wish I had taken it.  It is so pretty and crisp.  With that being said, I did have some fun with this and took it in a fun direction.

Here is the SOOC:

And here is my edit:

Here's what  I did:

I opened the image in ACR and increased the blacks a bit.  That's really all I needed to do in ACR since the white balance was spot on.  Oh...I did increase the recovery silder a little because the clouds were blown out, but I don't really mind that too much.  In PSE9, I ran MCP's Mini Fusion action, which I rarely use because I like figuring out how to achieve the desired result without actions, but I still don't know all the steps that go into creating the Mini Fusion action.  I turned on the blue layer to help the image retain that crisp, winter feel.  I then placed the image in this template from Skinned Knees because I could easily imagine this photo as a piece of wall art in an office.  How cool would it be to separate it onto different canvases like this? After that, I just resized it for my blog and sharpened.

Enjoy your week!

  1. Cool framing - I agree.. Great edit Shoni.. I'm participating today as well and LOVE your edit.. great job.. : ))

  2. This is a fun edit, and I really like what you did with it. The darkness of the shot appeals to me as well. The bokeh reminds me of little diamonds. Well done.
