And another one... BEFORE

I followed Ashley's very easy to follow basic instructions (the advanced instructions were over my head!), including the unsharp mask. Look forward to next week's Shoot and Edit!

Those berries almost look like they were staged; they're so bright and popped out! Great job on the edit!

ohhh! I LOVE love love what you've done with these shots! They were really good SOOC but your edits are terrific!! I had no time to work on my shoot and edit today but I can't wait to get to it tomorrow!

Great edits - the red really pops!

Susan said...

Wonderful edits, the brighter colors makes both pictures appear cheerier. The sky is much more vivid and I love how the white snow now sparkles. Great job!

Karli said...

These edits are FANTASTIC! I can't believe you have the beautiful red berries against the white snow. Our berries are all shriveled and yucky... trust me, I've looked - LOL! :-) Absolutely gorgeous!

Ooohh! I love how you brought the blue sky out more - it really makes the cherries and snow pop! Great job!

Joni said...

love how the colors pop in the edit. the red against the contrasting blue sky is so beautiful. i love it! great edit.

Beautiful edit - love how you make the colors pop - great crop!

For split toning (yellow and blue) in photoshop you can use adjustment layer - Color Balance.
Shadows - increase the blue and cyan (just little)
Highlights - increase the yellow (more than shadows)
