365-124: Rowan in the Woods




I really wanted a vintage/secret garden type of feel to this shot.

I edited it in Picasa (as I do all my shots) and I know some of you also use this free editor. And since Picasa doesn't have Actions, I thought I'd share what I did.


Here's the original:



And here are the steps I used:
Crop
Glow
Warmify
Desaturated
Boosted highlights



Nikon D3000

55mm
1/125s
f/5.6
ISO 110
