Here is this week's photo challenge, it was provided by Amy Sands from Little Adventures.
Here is my go at the edit.
The main things I did in the edit are below, but to be honest, I got wrapped up in the edit and forgot a lot of the little adjustments I made.
-I used French Kiss textures, Dahlia and Dirt to lighten up the photo.
-Later in the editing I used the French Kiss texture Old Master, and the Shadow House texture Paperbox to add a bit of a vignette around the photo.
-To accentuate the color of the horse, I used the Rad Lab stylets Oh Snap and Antique Light.
-I did a lot of cloning in the background to change the scenery.
-I also did some adjustments with Levels, Brightness, and Saturation in Elements 9
-Finally, I cropped the photo so that there would be less room behind the horse.
All-in-all, it was a fun and challenging edit...just how I like it :)
