Edit Me 2012 - Week 10

Wow, this week was a tough edit. It looks fairly simple, but I played around with it for three days to get the photo how I wanted it. To be honest, I'm not sure I'm finished yet, but I made myself quit so I could post before the deadline this evening.
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 :)


Thanks for the photo challenge Amy Sands!
