i'm excited to be participating for the first time! :] we had a little bit of an ice storm here last night so, of course, my first thought this morning was to snap a picture so i could participate =D so, yeah - i'm not that great with PSE but i'm hoping this will give me a chance to steal from learn from other bloggers in their touch ups! ;] so with that said - don't judge the newbie, a lot of this is completely foreign to me so i'm not going to go crazy but i'm not going to do any preset actions either!
i upped the saturation just a tad and adjusted the brightness to make the branch 'pop'. i adjusted the darkness in the background of the picture to again make the branch be the main point of the picture. what else could i have done??
and, although i said i wasn't going to run any preset actions, i couldn't help but play. i ran PW colorized and loved the way it made the ice look so i decided to post! ;]
