Anything Goes

The theme for Texture Tuesday first Tuesday of the month is anything goes.

This photo was taken on the Naples beach a couple of weeks ago.  The photo was first edited in Aperture.  Subsequently edited in Photoshop Elements adding a "frame" vignette effect - soft light 71%- and solid color adjustment.   (No texture was added to the photo.)

The original photo was rather lackluster - editing made all the difference.  I think the final result looks vintage - I like it!

I really am so fond of the soft frames and muted colors -- especially on this photo. It really takes me there.

Nice. I know Naples beach. used to live in Bonita and work in Naples many years ago. That little bit of editing you did made all the difference. Just found you through Ivy and Elephants. I'm your newest follower!

Incredible difference. I like that we can take a "lackluster" photo and turn it into something special with a little tweaking and perhaps a texture or two.
