Before & After

 Pixel Perfect
Taken with my Nikon D3000 35mm lens and edited in elements.
I used Orton from Coffee Shop on this photo. You adjust it to your liking. I really love how it brightens up the color and gives the misty type feel.  I then cropped and re-sized and sharpened for the web.

I am also entering the after in Faith at Simplicity Fall Photo Challenge

I wanted to let you all know that Kim Klassen is offreing a free Photoshop Skinny-Mini eClass. It will be a 10 part class on Elements 8. I just signed up for it. I am really excited to take it.

    Oh I love it! totally makes it be sooo much more then it already was. I love the other one too. ;)

  14. There is nothing better than fall. I love the color pop you added, yet you maintained the overall feel of the picture. I can tell it was an overcast day and I love that you didn't try to take that away and make the sky or the lake all funky.
