Potting Shed

One fall weekend, we attended a wedding on a beautiful piece of property in North Carolina. This potting shed was part of that.

A cute, rural potting shed. Not So SAHM

Potting Shed – ProjectEdit365 – 12 Nov

I wish I hadn’t have gotten that modern building in the background of the pic, but this challenge is about working with what I’ve got. I did a lot to this picture just playing around to get a look that I liked. I warmed the temp and moved the tint slider towards magenta. I increased the contrast and clarity and adjusted the tone curve slider to make it more matte. I used an adjustment brush on the “potting shed” letters to sharpen them, and I added a small vignette. Here’s the original:

Standing watch

I spied these two at a house right at a beach on Oahu. There’s so much to look at, including a pair of work gloves on the shoulders of the man on the right.

Standing watch – ProjectEdit365 – 31 July

From the original, I cropped in to focus on the statues. I cooled the temperature just a bit and slid the tint slider towards the magenta. I decreased the exposure, contrast, and highlights and increased the clarity. I used an adjustment brush on the statues to sharpen them a bit and make their texture more distinct. Here is the original:
