It was great to see the response to the Calling Photoshoppers project we featured this week (original post). I received a few suggestions that I give a shot at editing the image, so I spent a few minutes with it this morning. Here is my version.

I didn’t keep a detailed list of my editing steps (like the others did so well), but I will touch on a few highlights.

– Cropped and leveled
– Removed rock (thanks Brian)
– Blended two versions of the images, one sepia and one color
– Warmed up and softened using an action
– Brightened faces
– Vignette

My goal was to create a sepia image with a subtle color on the couple (especially the jeans and her top). Similar to others, I sought to create an old-fashioned feel to the image.

So, how’d I do?
