iheartfaces - Fix-It Friday # 52



Another Friday, another Fix-It Friday fun exercise! I don’t know why, but the first thought that crossed my mind when I saw this photo was that it could be one of those cards with inspirational quotes.

The original:image

So, that’s how I went about with my edit. Visualizing how it would be if it were one of those cards. First, I had to crop it tighter, then I flipped it horizontally to make the composition of the photo better able to accommodate the “quote.” I first worked on the photo –sharpened, played around with curves, etc. Then I added text and that little brush stroke using Illustrator. Afterwards, I used the AI file back on Photoshop to play around further with the overall look and feel…

Fix-It #1: Sharpened, PW’s Soft & Ethereal ActionFix-It-C

Fix-It #2: A slightly ‘dreamier’ feel.Fix-It-D

Fix-It #3: Sepia, with magenta filterFix-It-B

Here are all three edits again:52FixIt collage

Please head on over to iheartfaces and play along.

I need some help deciding on a new camera. Could you please chime in and let me know what you think?

Thank you! Have a great weekend!

Thanks, I like yours too! I think I like #2 the best. That is such a great quote for this photo.

Love it! And the fact that you flipped it!

And of course... who wouldn't love something with a BonJovi quote! Love :)

AJ said...

Very cool! I like the flip and the quote :).

I Love Pictures said...

Love the edits! How to get the edges rounded? I would love to know how to do that!
We are going to buy the new Canon T2i this weekend-I'm SOOO excited. I've waited a while to get my own DSLR :)

Sarah said...

That is so cool how you transposed the girl. Neat! I would have no idea about what camera to get. I just have a normal point and shoot. I'd LOVE to upgrade though!

Love all your edits but the one that pops out the most for me is #2! Awesome job :)

They are all so neat. Camera advice: I don't know what to tell you but I have a Pentax K10D that I love. Now, if I had a $2000, I would look into those nifty Nikons.

I like edit #2 best. I love the dreamy feel and think it is a perfect effect to go with your quote.

Your edits came out really good! It's hard to pick just one that I like because I like them all.

I love the last edit... but, they all turned out really great! I didn't think about flipping the image, but I love it!

Number 1 stands out better. In the second one, the girl's tights almost blends in with the white background.

Aunt LoLo said...

I like the second one!
