It's that time again: FRIDAY! This weeks entry is a little something different and I LOVE love LOVE this image... did I mention I love it? Really makes me think back to my childhood and all the times my grandfather and I spent together at horse shows and rodeos. Those memories will forever be in my heart.
Lets take a look at the original photo:
Now for my edit:
Lets start off with my program, I used PS CS3. I opened this image in Camera Raw and made adjustments there first. Then I opened it in PS and ran my noiseware program and Boutwell's Magic Glasses from Totally Rad Actions. I then ran my adjustment layers and played with them until I got the look I wanted. Cropped the image to draw the eye to the main attraction and not the onlooking cowboys. I ran CoffeeShops Little Perk action, turning off the sharpening layer (i always save my sharpening for last). Adjusted the Little Perk to my liking. Then I ran CoffeeShops Golden Vintage action, adjusting to my preference. Then I ran Coffeeshops Creamy Toffee Latte Action, again adjusting to my preference. The Toffee Latte action added a little too much red so I added a curve and adjusted the red.
I finished up my edit by adding a few textures, I kept the emphasis of the bull being brought down by masking out the textures on the bull and cowboy. I sharpened and whalla!
