Week Two–Edit of SOOC

Today we will be linking up with Ashley for her editing tutorial


On Monday I shared this shot SOOC:

I tried some of the things I know about editing to brighten the photo up and have learned from Ashley, however, it took several attempts to come up with an edit or two that I liked.  Here they are – sorry I don’t have my steps for you I did these in PSE8. I used layer masks and adjustment layers to brighten certain areas up, deepen the saturation and darken areas too.  I guess I should try to write down each thing I do.  I can’t promise but I will try for next week.


I really fell in love with it in B&W!  Remember I shared my love of Ansel Adams, thus my falling in love with landscape shots in B&W!


I continued to be blessed days later with more gorgeous sunrises – here are my favorite shots of them {I think I might invest in a polarized filter after reading more of Understanding Exposure}:

Just Say No - Word Verification

I’ll see you over at Ashley’s!

Remember next week’s theme is “What says “Good-Night” to you? in one SOOC.  We will be posting theme/prompts here to help give you ideas to think about and prepare your posts in advance.  Can’t wait to see all of your photos once again on Monday.  Again, thank you everyone who joined us this week.  We are both thrilled by all of your excitement to learn along with us!

  1. What a beautiful edit - I was wondering what you would do with your shot as it was so good to begin with. I have Ansel Adams black and white presets in my lightroom - I must try some of those out on my photos. Your snowy scene is just perfect for conversion.
