Afton hanging out by the pond.
I opened the photo in Camera Raw and proceeded to do a clean edit by simply adjusting the white balance, the brightness, fill light and blacks, and even a little color saturation tweaking.
After that I started following Ashley's tutorial, but I did skip a few steps that I didn't need, as they pertained to working on the white of the table and the shadow of the cup. I did use a few layer masks, to paint on and off certain effects. I also did a high pass filter twice, once at the beginning and again at the end, with a layer mask so I could keep the effect on only the eyes and the hair clip.
Let me know what you guys think of the edits, and check out more edits over at Ramblings and Photos!
