Before/After Blog Hop!

It's my favorite time of the week again! Pixel Perfect's Before/After Blog Hop!

Earlier this week, I told you guys about taking photos of an older woman's amazing garden. Well, I've been editing the rest of the photos, and came across this one!



It was one of the first ones I snapped before I knocked on the door and asked permission....these guys are actually well over the top of a 6 foot fence, hanging over the sidewalk!
I didn't know at that moment I was going to spend the next 45 minutes on this lady's property, nor was I even planning on taking photos...... I was on a walk with my kids!

So, when we got home, I kinda thought that one was gonna be a throw-away shot.....but hey, those are sometimes the ones I have the most fun editing!

Even Further After:



So hop on over to Pixel Perfect, and see all the amazing edits! Link up and add your own!

Your edits look great - there's a part of me that wants to add texture but it isn't necessary.

Courtney said...

I like both edits, but for some reason i'm drawn to the last one. Nice!

Great shot, I agree though that I like the last one the best. It has a really nice hue.

Erin said...

Love the crop and flare you have in the first edit!

Faith said...

Great crop!

You know, I totally didn't even realize I had a sun flare in that shot until I cropped and edited it!

Love your edits! The second one in particular has a feel to it I love but can't describe. Thanks so much for your sweet comment.

Annie said...

and thank you for praying! I'm so sorry I didn't mention that in my last comment. I appreciate it more than words can say. I am feeling much better about going to Nineveh than I was before. thank you, again, so much!
