Here's my SOOC. (I have no idea what was going on in my mind when I framed up this shot. Nothing like one flower smack dab in the center of the picture, right? HA!)
Below is my "clean edit" (I cropped, did a slight curves adjustment and adjusted the soft light blending mode), as well as my final result with the fairy garden effect.
What do you think? Normally I wouldn't have cropped the flower so near the center of the photo, but I wanted to make sure I had enough room for all of the little circles going upward.
I did my edit exactly according to the tutorial, and then I tried it my own way. My process involved fewer steps (and is the edit that I posted), but I'm so glad I tried the tutorial step by step. If you're a Photoshop novice like I am, you might be intimidated by so many steps. I certainly was! But I stuck with it, and it took about 15 minutes. I learned several new techniques that I can use again in the future.
Head on over to Chelsey's to see some more edits! Happy Tuesday! :-)
