Before and After

I haven't been here for a while, so it is good to be back! As I learned something new this morning, I couldn't wait to use it in a picture and thought this was the perfect opportunity to do this! I learned about "Adding Graduated Skies". This winter our church junior youth group was invited to a horse sled ride at one of our members farm. The kids had lots of fun and thankfully  it wasn't too cold, but it sure it was a pretty cloudy and grey kind of day! Not exactly "picture perfect" in you know what I mean! But thanks to Photoshop as you can see, I managed to transformed and dreary, grey day, into a pretty nice almost sunny day! So much pleasing to the eye, don't you think?

Here is the S.O.O.C

And here transformed by doing some cropping, lighting it up, boosting the colours
and applying textures. What do you think?
