took this picture a couple of weeks ago while looking for some fall colors. its ok not great. So I spent a couple hours playing around in photo shop elements (something I rarely do) and thought I would doll it up.
this is what I came up with first. I put a poster edge on it and then a defused glow. kinda cool and if you enlarge it it really makes it look a bit cartoony. but it was still blah to to me.
This is my final attempt and I am happier with it though now that I look at it the frame is a bit off hmmm will have to go back and fix that later. believe me I spent more time figuring out how to add a dang frame then anything. the clue is to increase canvas size I kept trying to decrease and figuring out how to add a layer of black grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr I told you I rarely do much other than a quick fix on my photos in photo shop.
Anyhow what I did to get this effect was took the second image and added a water paper and then increased the saturation of the red and yellows in the picture.
what do you think??
