I Heart Faces | Fix it Friday #96

It's been several weeks since I've participated in Fix-It Friday over on I Heart Faces.  I'm trying to get back in the routine of it.  So here's the scoop--I Heart Faces provides a photo to be edited.  Everyone has the chance to work on their editing skills and share it with others.  I LOVE Fix-It Fridays!  It really gives me a chance to play in Photoshop on an image that I don't have any emotional attachment to.  Very different from editing a photo that I took because I usually have some preconceived notion of how my photos should look. But with something that I didn't shoot...anything goes :)

So here is this week's photo straight from I Heart Faces.  It's very dark so the first thing to do is lighten it up.  I wanted an open field so I got rid of the kneeling man.  Then more adjustments which I can't list because I just play until I get a look that I like.

And here is my final edit.  This is the first time I've ever added clouds to a picture! 

That is a memory worth keeping.


  1. Great choice of clouds. Without seeing the original, I never would have guessed that they were added. Very nice!
