I've had quite a few readers ask how I've been editing my photos lately. Really, there is no big secret! I've just been shooting RAW and then editing in the RAW editor and then in Photoshop Elements 7. Mostly, I've been playing around with the fill light, clarity, and contrast. After I move the image to PSE 7 I then brighten select areas and sharpen the image. In this case, I also used the straighten tool in this particular image. Some of the images I love and some I don't care for but I am too lazy to go back and re-edit before I post which is a big photography no-no. But I've never been one to follow rules so whatever.
For today's Before and After blog hop sponsored by Pixel Perfect I chose a sunset image that I took at a local lake in the North Texas area. Here is my SOOC shot:
And here is my final edited version:
I love the end results!
