Editing and such.

So, the hubby got me Lightroom editing software for Christmas. I'm having a little fun playing around--so I decided I'd participate in the Paper Camera's editing link-up.

Touch Up Tuesday's at the Paper Mama

 Before Edit:

After Edit: In Lightroom I used a preset called Color Creative-Aged Photo. It was too bright, so from there I adjusted the exposure, upped the blacks and contrast a bit. I also did a little noise reduction.

A little overdone, maybe--but kind of a a fun, wintery look. Voila!

  1. How much do you LOVE Lightroom? My husband and brother (with his student ID) gave me Lightroom for christmas and I'm obsessed. I was SO upset the day that my 30 day trial ran out, that I practically cried. I have so much to learn about it, but i LOVE playing with it. love love love.
