Edit Me~ {week 8}


     I was so happy to join Edit me this week. Jaxy & mommy are still fighting an ugly head cold, so not many pictures have been snapped this week. Instead I got the pleasure of editing this super lovely shot! Is this not the perfect setting?! This was taken by Bree from His Honey & Her Mommy, & this is her gorgeous little girl. I heart this picture, & it was a joy to edit!

What I did~
- I was originally not going to crop this. I LOVED that her cute bare feet were in the water. I wanted to focus on her sweet face though. Her expression is priceless. So I went ahead w/ cropping.
- Cloned out the sun ray on her hand
-basically just added a "faded daguerreotype" preset on Picnik, & that is it! I loved the pretty soft colors in the original, but think the b&w makes this cutie pie stand out more than the background.



Linking up with Edit Me!

I like the fact that you decided to crop the image and the black/white effect. The picture takes on a completely different look! Happy Weekend:D
