Edit Me - Week 16

My Reflection of Something

I haven't done many Edit Me's in awhile, but I really liked the picture this week so I thought I'd give it a go! I did a quick edit, nothing too fancy. It probably took me 15 minutes tops. I used Picasa and Picnik, as usual. 

Here's the original:

a lovely picture without editing, of course.
I messed with the shadows first and made it a bit darker, then took it to Picnik, where I added a sepia tone, adjusted the exposure and contrast after that, add the Orton-ish (or whatever it's called) effect, then added a soft vignette.

The final product:

my biggest concern was not allowing the dress to blur in with the background.
Happy editing!


Oh, and a little Death Cab for Cutie, because this song has been stuck in my head for the past 48 hours.

And I think this video is pretty cool.
