Edit Me - Week 14 {A Vintage Fishing Vessel}

This week's challenge over at My Reflection of Something was FUN! (Yep..that's fun with all CAPS, baby!)

As soon as I saw the image supplied by Amy it spoke to me and asked me to add some vintage lovin' to it! And since I am such a pleaser, I did just what the photo asked for...black & white vintage with some texture.

Check out my edit and let me know what you think!

My edit





















Amy's original photo

My steps were:
1) Cropped the image
2) Sharpened it
3) Used Totally Rad's Brooklyn B&W action
4) Burned the edges & faded out the background to get rid of the stuff on the horizon
5) Added some layers of texture from Totally Rad actions


I'm really happy with how it turned out...it's just as I imagined it to be!
