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.

  12. 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.
