Skies the Limit ... edited

Welcome back to the Thursday edition of Shoot & Edit/Good to WOW ... the unveiling of the edits day.  :)  As I said in my post on Monday, I was very pleased with my SOOC shots so I didn't do much as far as editing goes.  Just pumped up the vibrancy some to make the blue sky bluer.

Mouse over each photo to see the SOOC version ...

I also cropped this one slightly.

On this photo I also used the spot healing tool to remove some spots.  Apparently I had dust on my lens.

Just the basic editing done to this one.

I like quick and easy edits.  

EDITED TO ADD:  Sarah at Naptime Momtog suggested that I combine these two photos, so I gave it a try.
Two photos combined
I opened the sunshine photo then placed the steeple photo on top and used the Lighten blending mode.  (After trying several blending modes, that one looked the best).  What do you think?

Looking forward to seeing your edits!  And I will be around to visit today.  The kids and I have been enjoying our great weather for the past few days, which is why I haven't been around.  But today my husband is fixing the brakes on my car, so I'm enjoying a relaxing day at home.  Well, a day at home.  Not sure how relaxing it will be.  :)

Have a great weekend!

Gorgeous. Love your edits. You know what would be neat is if you combined the two photos. Had the sun beam shining on the cross. :) Just an idea. Very pretty.

Great shots and lovely edits! I keep meaning to jump on the Shoot & Edit bandwagon... just not there yet. Maybe in the fall when I have more free time!!
