Edit Me: Week 8

My Reflection of Something

Time again for another Edit Me challenge!

I am excited to say that I got "honorable mention" in last week's challenge.  Not high enough to win a prize (or even a mention for most weeks - Branson was just being extra nice and mentioning the runner-ups since she happened to be judging this week, haha), but I'm still happy!

For this week's photo, I wanted my edit to be quick and simple because, frankly, I've got a lot on my plate right now and I need to move on to the million other things on my to-do list.  So here it is.


My edit:

First I did a quick white balance adjustment, then lightened the midtones using a curves layer.  Then I ran two actions from My Four Hens.  The first action was Superb (a b&w action) with the conversion layer turned off.  The second action was One Day.  I tweaked both actions to my liking.  Then I stuck on my watermark.

Speaking of photography, today I am attending a live photography workshop hosted by Amanda at Everyday Elements and I am SOOOOOOO excited!!  I absolutely love all the tutorials that Amanda offers for purchase and free on her site...not to mention that she's super sweet and helpful if you have questions.  If you haven't checked out her site yet and you're into editing in Elements or Photoshop, you should definitely head there now. :)

I will share about my experience with the workshop next week! Have a blessed weekend!
