Happy Independence Day: Edit Me

Friday, July 01, 2011

This week's Edit Me Challenge is in full swing over at My Reflection of Something.
I really like doing these each week!

My Reflection of Something

For this photo: I processed in LR first, then over to CS5.
I'm having trouble remembering all my steps in Lightroom, but I know I used a preset - then did some adjustments, cropped and exported to CS5. There, I played with the selective color until the reds were redder (no? not a word?) because the preset I used in lightroom kind of gave them an orangy tone. I then applied one of my favorites - PTM's Fun Faux Flare Action. Lastly, I added the quote from Daniel Webster.
There you have it..at least the parts I can remember!
Here's Branson's original:

Hope everyone has a Happy and Fun Filled Fourth!

I love the communication and connections one simple comment on a blog can bring. Lifetime friendships are formed, grown, and flourished in this little box. So, basically the pressure is on ;)
