touch-up Tuesday

I turned touch-up Tuesday over to Chelsey so I could get a handle on the craziness over here, and what am I doing? Yep...a quick edit. I snapped this picture about 10 minutes ago, so I'll make it quick.

Here's the SOOC:

My clean edit:
(you all know my basic clean-up steps by now, don't you?) LOL! Same thing every week. ;-)

And here's my final edit, a little vintagy hazy look. This got a thumbs down from the hubs. He likes my bright, clean, colorful images (like the sunflower photo I posted yesterday). What do you think?

I would have liked to have played around with the colors more, but this a really quick edit.

I'm really going now...
Have a great Tuesday! :-)

Love it.. but I too will take yesterdays over any of these.. cause that is how I roll.. Still love it, but if I was going to buy one and yesterdays shot and todays shots were my choice, I pick yesterday.

Beautiful job!

Mandy said...

I love the vintage hazy sunflower! So pretty. And... isn't it crazy that it doesn't matter how busy life is, there's always time for a quick edit! :-)

I must be fickle; I love them all Karli. Especially the blue b/g on the last shot.

I'd really like to take part in TUT. Would it be annoying to have 2 posts every Tuesday? (Ruby's not willing to change her name) lol.

Ooooh -- they are all so pretty!! Say, do you take photos of people other than your family (like clients)? Would you be able to edit out crow's feet and other assorted wrinkles? :) In other words, do you have a photography business going? Let me know!

Hmmm... you know, I actually like the first edit better! I think the flower petals are a little sharper or something.

Gotta love "fresh" pics. :D

Ashley said...

I really liked the first one and then scrolled down...hmm I think I like the middle one the most too. But they are all great. I need to learn how to edit my pics!

Actually, they're all pretty...even the SOOC!

Sereina said...

I love the vintage look!

Kristen said...

Beautiful!

Courtney said...

Gorgeous! I love the detail in the petals and the softness of your edit. Stunning!

Barb Phillips said...

Beautiful I love the blue and yellow.

Anika said...

I love what you did with the color! I think the middle one is my favorite too but the soft one on the bottom is also beautiful... Your SOOC shot was great to begin with! Nice job

Wendy said...

I think your husband and my husband are reading the same camera manual. Sigh. But, they're both wrong. Love the edit!

Jessica said...

Oh my those are gorgeous! Its amazing what a little editing can do to add to your photos!

Anna said...

These are all *uh-mazing* ..I said WOW on the first one..and loved each one better. The last hazy one is especially delicate, and fits the interesting pose of the flower, if I can even call it posing. ..LOVELY job, you are a real artist. Have you thought about selling your photos? ;)

Ashley Sisk said...

Hello friend...you know I'm a fan of your work but I really like the vintage look. So tell the hubs to shove it. JK

Mackenzie said...

These are great edits! Wow! It just goes to show what editing can do with a picture, it can turn it from great to jaw-dropping! Fabulous job!! You do great work as well!

Courtney from The Story of Us said...

IMO they are all great! I think it's nice to change things up every once in awhile so the vintagey one is my fav...that is as of today... :)

Nicole said...

I LOVE the vintagy look!

Buckeroomama said...

I always admire the vintagy look, but I don't always love it, but I LOVE yours!! You got just the right amount of softness, de-saturation, and haze... LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! :)

I've yet to really like any of my own vintagy attempts... still working on getting them just right. :)
