Edit Me Challenge

Thursday, April 5, 2012

I decided to try something new this week and join in the Edit Me challenge. I had fun playing with this beautiful pic that was taken by Alicia of Project Alicia. I did two different edits just for fun (and because I am indecisive).


 Here's the original photo:


For my first edit, I opened it in LR3 and cropped it just a touch, then I played with the sliders until I was happy. I was going for the moody and dramatic. Then I took it into PS4 and sharpened for the web:


For the second I used a LR vintage action, but lightened it up by adding brightness and fill light. Then I increased the luminance before I  took it into PS4. In PS4, I ran Paint the Moon's Hushed Softness to add some dreaminess and exported for the web. 

I love editing pics, especially beautiful ones like this. The sky is the limit!

These are both STUNNING edits! I think the first one is my fave, though! So dramatic and awesome. xoxo

Shoni said...

Love both of the edits...the first one has such a fantasy feel to it. Great job!

alicia said...

Wow! These two are so completely different! The first is definitely my fav of the two. Your "moody and dramatic" won me over. But the vintage hues in the second is light and lovely as well. Keep up the great editing!

Wonderful how you took the photo, and gave it two incredibly beautiful but different effects. The first one has such dramatic colors... and the second looks like it should go with a mystery novel!

The second rendition is my personal favorite - dreamy and romantic which is unexpected in such a barren place.

The color edit? Wow, wow, wow! Looove that one! The dreamy one is very cool too :)

Amy said...

love both edits... I'm normally partial to the 'moody' feel myself, but I have to say, I really dig the sweetness of the second edit :)

Stephanie Clark said...

Both edits are awesome girl! I'm so happy you linked up and shared your process! =)
