Orange ... Edited

The weather is so gorgeous outside today, I hate to be inside even writing up this blog post.  So I'll be quick about it, k?  Here are my orange photos from Monday ... the edited versions ...

On this one some slight increase in exposure, blacks, clarity, and vibrance.  And a little dodging/burning to brighten up his face.  Oh, and I cropped the other lady out of the photo.  Then ran the usual high-pass filter and resized for the web.

Can't do the mouse over thing when the photos are different sizes.  :(  Only slight adjustments to this photo also.

Lastly, I'd like to thank each of you that left such nice comments on this flower photo.  When I first saw it, I was a little disappointed at the soft focus.  But thanks to Katie Lloyd and all her awesomeness, I'm learning to embrace soft focus.  :)  So I actually only slightly increased clarity and vibrance on this.  I did not run a high pass filter on it because I wanted to keep the softness.  And I was pretty pleased with my sooc shot.

So that's it for me today.  I'm eager to get outside and enjoy the sunshine.  Think I'll kick my feet up and read a little before the chillins get home from school.  Laundry and house work can wait.  :)

To see more great orange edits, head over to Ashley's.

Very nicely done - that last shot really is beautiful. And your edit is very subtle.

You should be really proud of these- I love how you made the ones of the boys pop, and then the contrast to the softness in the flower. Really- that flower is incredible!!!!! I would blow it up & have it printed on canvas. You have inspired me to find my own flower & do just that!

So glad to see you didn't do much to the flower picture... it was wonderful SOOC!! We've finally got some sun here... and go figure, I've been hanging out inside cleaning. Gotta embrace the cleaning urge when it comes though... =P
