One Four Challenge & 31 Days of Inspiration

Yes I will be doing 2 different things today so make sure you look at the entire post.

Joining Robyn (Captivate Me) for the October One Four Challenge.

This month I chose a photo I've had for some time (since 2014) and have just been waiting for a chance to do something with it.

This month I'm starting by showing you the Original SOOC shot first with no editing other then my watermark.

 
For my Week 1 Edit I decided to first straighten and crop the photo.  Then I wanted it to be more "cheery" so I adjusted the lighting and added in a little more color.  I also cloned out the dried up bush in front of the cherub and the yellow sign off the pole on the right side of the photo.  - All work was done on Pic Monkey.

 Week #1

Now for Day 5 of my 31 Days of Inspiration I submit the following photo and quote:
 
 
 



Wishing you a wonderful week.

  16. great job on the edit!!! I'll have to learn how to edit something out of the picture like that. I bet it would come in handy.
    And I like your quote too... small pleasures are often the best.

  18. I just scrolled through, Ida, and I have to tell you your photography skills are just amazing. A little editing can work wonders, too. When I first saw the unedited photo I thought how pretty it was, and then I scrolled down and saw the doctored up version and my eyes popped out. You have really honed your skills over the years.
