Week 24 Edit Me

I really think these Edit Me Challenges are so fun...LOVE them. This week Branson from My Reflection of Something who is one of the lovely hostesses of this weekly challenge has presented us with an image of her own to edit. A found treasure from her Grandfather, an old Brownie Hawkeye Camera. Oh, would I love to have one of these in my stash. But will have to settle for editing her's.
So, here is the original.....

And here is mine......
I edit all my images in PSE 9. 
  • Decided to crop the pic down to really highlight the camera.  I thought the trees, bushes and too bright sky was distracting to the focal point of the shot.
  • Lightened, ran a slight contrast boost and sharpened (camera only) with "paint the moon" actions.
  • Enhanced the vintage look with a Florabella Vintage Wine Action
  • Added a tattered frame from Cottage Arts Scrap Frames 9
  • Added text
And that's it for this week's edit.  Come on over and join the fun.

Our tiny BIG Life

Until next time.......

  11. Hi Deanna ... just stumbled onto the Edit Me challenge and saw your edit ... it's lovely! I want to say that reading your profile touched my heart, too, and your photos are an inspiration to me! I'm entering a new season of life, empty-nest, etc., and seems it's taking awhile, but I'm working on starting a little photography business, but in the meantime, I'm truly enjoying capturing memories of family and friends ... oh, and a photo walk, or two, thrown in for more fine-tuning! Sure hope you don't mind my following you! You have a blessed week! :)


Thank you so much for leaving a comment, I read and cherish them all. I will do my best to return the favor.
