Edit Me Challenge - 2012 Week 18

Edit Me

Time for this week's Edit Me Challenge!

Here is the original image:

And here is my edit:

First I opened the image in ACR to straighten the photo according to the horizon line.  I also cropped the photo; it is a very busy image, and I found the right side of the image to be more interesting than the left, so I cropped off the left side.

I then opened the image in Photoshop.  I ran the My Four Hens action "Spiffy" to convert the image to black and white, then added a curves layer to give the image a little pop.  I also added a vignette to help frame the photo.  I resized for web, sharpened, added my watermark, and saved for web & devices.

I must be honest.  I tried a million different things before I could figure anything out for this photo.  It's not my typical photo subject, so it was tough!! A good challenge, though. :)
