I found another funny contest in the wide worlds of web…
You’ll get an original photo and can edit it just as you like it.
So, without any further ado:
Flip Flop Edit Challenge

MY EDIT

Flip Flop Edit Challenge « Midsommarflicka | So, it was weekend. And I was bored.

I wanted to keep it more or less natural, but it wasn’t that easy to make something good from this pic, as it has a lot of “burned out” and too dark areas from the sun and shadows. (Do you say that in english – “burned out”?!)

I’m not really satisfied with my edit at the end. But it was a great exercise again as I hadn’t made any edits for a long time…

It is hard for me to explain what I did as my Photoshop is in german and I don’t know, what a lot of the stuff is called in english… Anyway. I try: I stamped a bit in the faces, changed the curves, Hue and Saturation, applied some dodge and burn, some Gaussian Blur in the faces and the background, made a lens correction in the wrong direction so that the pic got this black border and corners (Vignette?! Is that an english term as well?)
And in the second version I used a free texture and applied it in the blending mode and only 40% opacity.

Did you understand anything of that explanation? :)

Love
