Night & Ferris Wheel Edits

For this edit. I changed the color tones a little, darkened it up a tad  and used Pioneer Woman’s Lovely & Ethereal. I love using that for sunsets. That is it. It looks more dramatic. I do like that you can see the clouds more in the SOOC.    This original is from Kathryn who […]
