Touch Up Tuesday: Water Lily

There's a pond that we walk by on our way to and from preschool.
I usually bring my camera because we see new and beautiful things every time!
This lily was our latest surprise.


Before:
Water Lily - SOOC


After:
Water Lily Grunge


I edit with PSE 8 and here's what I did:


Step 1. Cropped.
Step 2. Ran PW's Lovely action.
Step 3. Applied concrete grunge texture, changed layer to screen mode.
Step 4. Adjusted levels.
Step 5. Erased texture layer from lily.
Step 6. Used the burn tool to darken the frame edges and the lily.
