I've been exploring more photography sites and I joined i heart faces a few weeks ago. They have a challenge every Friday to edit a photo and I thought I'd jump in today! Be kind, it's my first time, tee hee.
Here is the original photo:
And my edit (image is clickable to see a larger version):
My workflow looked something like this:
~crop for a different focal effect
~levels and curves adjustment
~hue/saturation adjustment layer colorize, 35/25/0 set to 20% soft light
~convert to b/w
~Paint the Moon Sugar Cookies action with tweaking
Thanks for looking and letting me play!
