Shoot & Edit...SOOC photo challenge

Here is my SOOC (straight out of camera) shot I posted earlier this week...

BEFORE

This is with the first basic edit...

This is with the more advanced edit...

This is my final edit...

As my subject matter was different than Ashley's I just kept doing her steps over & over again until I came up with a formula that worked with my shot. I LOVED how Ashley led us through all those steps, because it did exactly what she hoped for...it encouraged me to experiment with the adjustment layers and layer masks. Still not sure which one I like the best - but so fun to play with! Will still need TONS of practice, but what a GREAT exercise! Thank you Ashley!

Oh, what a sweetie pie!! That face is just too much! I love your edits...your next to last one I like because it really brings out the texture of puppy's fur, but I also like the last edit because of the softness you brought to the photo.
