{fix-myphoto} friday

Just found this nifty blog over at The Trendy Treehouse. They do "{fix-myphoto} Friday"  (amongst other fun stuff!) and since I'm in the editing mood, here it goes.....


So I thought, "What am I going to do with that?!" The rays shoot through the shot....useless. THEN (ah-ha!) I got an idea.

Edit 1:

I saw these women in the background. Perfect. I love this. I'm going to think of these ladies as sisters.

Here are my steps using (I'm cheap):
  •  cropped
  •  added shadowing
  • upped saturation
  • warmed up the whole photo
I'm happy with it--it's not awesome, but it's a fix :)

Just for fun, I went ahead a played with this part of the photo, too.

  • Cropped
  • Softened focus
  • Upped the saturation a little
  • Upped the shadowing
  • Did pop black&white leaving the sky, water and surroundings full color.
  • Upped the saturation.

And, that's that. Again, not awesome--but a fix!

  2. Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog....following you back :)

  3. I didn't even think to focus on the women in the background when I did mine! Way to think outside the box!! I really like your second edit as well! That background almost looks like a water color. I hope you get a chance to come check out mine! I just started joining Trendy Treehouse for their friday fixes!
