Third Thursday Challenge


Once again by the skin of my teeth....but here is my Third Thursday challenge.  Something I've been meaning to learn to do for a long time - the before/after mouseover.  If you mouseover the image you should see the before image (here's hoping anyway - you can't test until you hit publish!).

I followed Kim Klassen's tutorial which is part of her Behind the Scenes ecourse.  I think it is also available on her site too.

Happy Thursday. :)

  1. Well, it works and it's amazing! I love the warm feeling the editing gives to the flowers! There are so many fabulous things to learn out there!!

  2. Okay, that's just too freakin' cool!! And you know, while the before is lovely, the after is like a painting...so vibrant that I could feel the "furriness" (I don't know what else to call it!) of the leaves on the African violets. Isn't it great when we learn something new? I love that feeling and then saying "OMG...I did that, I did that!" -- like I'm 5! Thing is I don't remember being that impressed when I learned something new at that age...it was all just part of growth. I'm so thrilled that we get to have that excitement of learning as we get older!

  3. Whoohoo...you cracked it! The before is super but the after is really beautiful, I love the texture work you used.

  4. Becs - Yea! it worked! I love this challenge you have given yourself. I think we all have a "things-I-want-to-try-someday" list - but the challenge is finding the time and then actually doing them. And this is such an effective way to show off your post-processing and what an impact it had on your original image. I love the way the texture added a glowing light effect, making the petals pop, as well as adding interest to the background. Thanks so much for joining in with the Third Thursday Challenge!

  6. Oh, Becs, great job, and great example! I've always admired that and wondered how it was done. I'll have to see if I can find that tutorial.
