Water ... Edited

Welcome back to Shoot & Edit/Good to WOW!  Earlier this week you saw my SOOC shots.  Today I show you my edits.

If you've been around here for any time at all, you already know that I don't like to spend a great deal of time editing.  So I keep things pretty simple most of the time.  That's what I did this week.  Kept things simple.  Besides, since the kids started school yesterday, I have a LOT of homework to do!  Somehow that doesn't seem fair!  :)

Anyway, without further ado ... here are my water photos ...

Just simple edits.  In ACR I increased the recovery a bit since the original was a bit overexposed.  I also increased the blacks, clarity, and vibrancy.

I decided to add a solid mauvish-colored layer to warm this photo up a bit - turned the opacity down to about 50%.  Mouse over to see the above edited version vs. the warmer version.

Increased blacks a little, increased clarity and vibrancy.  And cropped.

Since these photos are different sizes, I couldn't do the mouse over thing.  So you'll just have to see them this way.  Here's the SOOC one.

And the edit.

I really didn't do much with it - increased blacks slightly and increased clarity and vibrancy, as usual.

Same simple edits on this one.  And I believe I cropped it slightly.

So that's it for me.  Be sure to head over to Ashley's to see more great water edits.  (still can't get that darn button to work)
Next week's theme is Back to School - in case you'd like to play along.

I like the edits...the colors are more vibrant. I wish we could find a spot like that around here. There's something about the sound of rushing water, while being out in nature. Looks like a great place to spend time.
