It is a busy week... but in honor of reconnecting with EditMe, I set aside a little editing time to submit an edit.
This photo was taken by Stephanie from Gray Mornings Photography.
Here is my edit:
I first changed out the colors of the quilt background to bring more attention to her face, but I wasn't satisfied with the results. After other attempts, the main changes that you see are from: some smoothing on the skin using a reversed highpass filter; adding a heavy gaussian blur and some painting over the quilt to draw all our attention to that cute little smile, some cropping, a photo filter to tone the color, and a copied layer set to overlay to pop some color. Then added some canvas for the framing, and a bit of text. That's the main idea... I had so many layers from experimenting :o)
Here is the original:
Let me know what you think!
Glad you're back, EditMe!
