Fix-It Friday

July 23, 2010

Every Friday, I Heart Faces posts a photo for readers to download and practice their own editing skills.  No winners or losers, just for fun.  It's also a great learning tool as some of the experts will post their step by step adjustments so you can follow along, perhaps even try to duplicate their genius :)  I've never participated before, but thought it may be fun every once in awhile to step out of my comfort zone and play around with different Lightroom presets.

This week's original:
 
and my play:
(cropped, "Matt's Vintage Style" preset, graduated filter to decrease exposure on sky, increased contrast, and addt'l vignetting).  I was going for an airy, summery look.  Once I take my CS5 class this fall, I'm determined to learn how to remove the fence post, maybe even the green blob of tree, from behind their pretty little heads!
