Caleb and I went for a very short Walkabout Wednesday walk today. It started to rain less than 5 minutes after we left. Oh well. It was nice to get away from the computer for a few minutes, anyway. We passed by my neighbor’s beautiful yard and I just had to stop and take some pictures of her bleeding hearts. They are so delicate and pretty.
For this one (natural light on a very cloudy day) I did most of the edits in ACR – I increased the clarity and vibrance to +20, and then in Photoshop I duplicated the layer, made the new one soft light at about 15% opacity, then used Smart Sharpen to finish it up.

Caleb found a poofyhead, of course…
I didn’t really edit this one much – just fixed a bit of overexposure in ACR.

Lovely colors on the Bleeding hearts. I like the way you have the shot the branch - it gives a depth to this shot.

Celeb shot is cute!
