Edit Me ~ Week 24


I love, love, love the photo for this week's Edit Me Challenge. And making it extra special is that it was provided by one of my blogging buddies Branson. (Who by the way is a super amazing woman that rocks as a photographer and is so encouraging and lovely!!)

This week's edit was an easy choice for me...this photo just screamed out for a really good black & white treatment. And for anyone that knows me, they know that I LOVE a good black & white photo!

 
My edit for this week's challenge!
My editing steps:

1) Upped the exposure just a tad in camera raw
2) Desaturated the image
3) Curves layer to adjust the b&w
4) Used MCP Actions High Def Sharpening to really bring out the texture in the tree bark & the grasses
5) Added some grain to the photo to give it some extra dimension & interest

So what do you think?

If you are interested in joining in, head on over the the website for the weekly Edit Me Challenge and download the photo and join in the fun! Or just check out all of the other amazing edits...

Have a great week and happy hump day to everyone!!

  2. I absolutely love your b/w conversion. My instinct with b/w is always to go high key and this is a perfect example of why that isn't always the right move! The extra sharpening and grain really add so much dimension as well! Wonderful edit!
