Photo Feedback - Week 20

Wednesday, May 23, 2012

 Hey there friends. I'm late to the party, but joining in another week of Photo Feedback hosted by fun and fabulous Kim at Mom Tried It.  If you are new to Photo Feedback and you enjoy photography, I can tell you it's a wonderful way to get an honest critique of your work from your peers. I find it very helpful to have some weekly feedback and direction from a fresh perspective.

Here is my photo for this week. I thought I'd try something a little different with my editing and I went for an old timey vintage look. Not sure if I like it, but it's growing on me a bit. I thought the location and wardrobe fit the edit. What do you think?
I cropped and did a clean edit in LR, then ran Pioneer Woman's Vintage in PS lowering the opacity to taste. I flattened then ran Paint the Moon's Hushed Softness lowering the opacity of each layer. 

Here's my SOOC.
And my settings. This was taken with my 50 mm lens in bright sunlight around 11 AM

I think you did a great job with the edit...almost looks like a painting. The original is not super sharp so this edit helped remedy that!

Thank you for joining in again. i just want to let you know to never feel obligated to join each week. Life is crazy enough, especially with kids, to ever try to commit to something every week like that. Join in when you can. I just thought maybe more people would get braver by now. ;)

I love this look! I really like the vintage feel to it and the whole Little House on the Prairie feel. I think the grain works really well over your daughter, the field, and the trees. I do think it is a tad too much over the sky, though. Maybe reduce the grain a little just on the sky? That is all I've got. this photo is very cool. You really should print it up.

Hello! I like what you did with the photo. Maybe just blur the grain a bit.

I love the vintage feel. Your cloning of the trees and grass really enhanced it! I love the texture, but it feels a little dark. Maybe if you lightened it over her and the sky? It looks great over the field and trees :) You did a very nice job telling a story with this one!
