This weeks picture was taken by the lovely Miss Marylin from The Artsy Girl Connection. This lady has such an eye for all things pretty! If ya haven't already, go check her out!
This shot was taken at Disney World.
What a perfect place to get lost & take a million pictures!
I was a bad girl this week. I went ahead & used Picnik, instead of getting more comfortable w/ Photo Shop. I actually quite like how it turned out. I promise by next week, I'm going to just bite the bullet, & use Photo Shop! I'm not going to feel too bad about it though, for what Picnik is... it's pretty fabulous!
I first started off cropping
I then thought it may look good reversed. I did it, & liked it
I decreased the exposure a bit, & upped the contrast by only 2
I used the doodle tool to color in the red boat canopy, then faded it out until I like the result
(I only have the "free" version of Picnik people! Lol... gotsta work w/ what I have!!)
I added a Lomo-ish effect & blurred the edges to add more focus to the boat
The lomo effect made it a little too saturated, so I toned that back down
Added a very slight vignette in a light gray tone
Finally sharpened it up, added a little clarity, & a thin black border.
