Before and After

Last week I posted a picture that I decided I would do some more playing around with.
Remember this one? Well I liked the picture but I wished the water would have been a prettier color and I wanted to lighten some of the picture up just a little.


I ended up doing a blur overlay on it as well as a canvas texture and this is what I ended up with

and here is the side by side comparison. I liked it.

The original might have needed some touching up but I like it better than the second - but then you know me...

You prettied that up very nicely. Making the water blue rocks.

Have a terrific Sunday. My best to Duke. :)

Very cool. I'm hoping I have more time to play with PSE now that the kids are gone. I've got BIG plans for all of my new-found "free" time!

It's amazing how you've changed the picture. If you didn't show them side by side, you wouldn't know they were the same picture.
Hugs,antonella :-)

After trying to find out how to do some things with Photoshop Elements 9, I now have a lot more respect for your talents (begrudgingly).

It reminds me of a fairy land. The green is greener and the water is so blue.
