My Edited Version

This is my edited version of this week's photo challenge. It was pretty enjoyable to edit! I wanted to give the photo a softer feel, overall.

I started in picnik with regular editing (straightening the picture, adjusting contrast, exposure, etc.). Next I searched for some 'artsty' effects, and came across and applied an oil painting effect (I think!). Finally, I wound up in fotoflexer (since I'm not sure if picnik does layering), layered the over-the-top-artsy picture on top of my first edit, and reduced it's opacity. I re-added the sky as a third layer (on top) to maintain it's blue color since it had become overly washed out with the other editing.  Seems like everyone else has some fun edits posted already, too!! {Click the button to check 'em out!}
