I don't normally post twice in one day but I came across these seemingly paired challenges and happened to have the time so I thought I would have a bit of fun. Thanks to Simplicity and My Reflection of Something for their editing challenges. This is her photo and my editing... What do you think? did I improve and enhance or just mess with what should have been left alone?
1. This is my edited version of her photo
I took her original photo and I adjusted the color balance, I saturated it a bit and then put a filter on it toning the saturation in the photo down a with a pale yellow. This was done with a free Google editor Picasa
2. This is her original photo no editing.
This next set is from another Blogger with another challenge! It is again editing a photo they provided. So see how you like this set
1. My edit on their photo
This particular picture I felt like had good colors but the people in it didn't pop, they melded into the background. But because of the reds and pinks already in the original a simple saturation wouldn't do without making them look like the latest Dick Clark. So I took the photo made it a whiter tint, heightened the highlights a bit and darkened the shadows then brought the color down to a slightly "cool"-er town. Again this was done with a free Google editor Picasa
