Fix-It Friday

POTD – January 29, 2010

iheartfaces fix-it-friday

It’s Fix-It Friday over at iheartfaces and this week’s photo is simply gorgeous all by itself…but it lends itself well to texture.  So here goes…

This is the original…simple and beautiful.  There really isn’t much to fix.

Original But, in the interest of Fix-It Friday, here is my very basic fix.  Not much…just a little more depth and a color pop.  I used the Perfect Portrait action from Coffee Shop for a fast and easy adjustment.

Fix 1 And since it has been texture week, here are two with textures added and a crop.

Color Texture

B&W 2  And finally, here is the B&W conversion without texture.


All edit were done in PSE 5.0…nothing fancy.  All edits took less than 10 minutes total!   Make sure you hop on over to iheartfaces to check out all the other creative renditions of this one photo…it always amazes me how many possibilities one photo has to offer!

I like the b/w version with the texture. The crop is excellent and someone I think a fairy should be sitting on her shoulder.
