This will be my first time participating in an Edit Me challenge from the blog My Reflection of Something. It seemed like a fun thing to do. She gives a photo to edit and then the participants change it to their liking. It's an opportunity to play around with someone else's photo and try different editing techniques. And of course you learn a lot by seeing what others do.
So here's the photo SOOC (straight out of camera):
And here is my edit:
First I straightened the horizon, then cropped the pic a bit. I used the My Four Hens action Just Love, added a bit of a cooler tone, then resized and sharpened a bit. I wanted to lighten the picture and cool down some of the browns from the sand, sea weed, and water.
Head on over and check out what others did. :)
