Edit Me - Week 18

The lovely Kathryn from Our Tiny Big Life has posted a "terrific" photo from Chicago (my stomping grounds) for the "Edit Me" Challenge this week.  I do believe I have photographed this very same image once or twice or more.  It is difficult to edit an already pinch-me-perfect photo with that dazzling blue sky, but thought I would give it a try.  This is a fun project that I enjoy each week but what is really FUN is to see all the others that contribute to the "Edit Me" challenge.

This is the original....see what I mean about pinch-me-perfect?!!

And here is my version....

I edit in Photoshop Elements 9
  • Added the Florabella Action "Vintage Wine"
  • Added a free starry texture from flickr, 1 layer at soft light at 100% opacity, 2nd layer at linear burn at 25% opacity.
  • Added the moon shot (mine) 3 layers, all at soft light.   
  • Added the frame from Cottage Arts Scrap Frames 9 and lightened it a bit. 
Now, come on over to Branson's blog My Reflections of Something and ohhh and ahhh over all the wonderful "Edit Me" entries. 

Until next time..........
