Edit Me

I am super excited about this link up!  Ashley  posted about this challenge today.  This is right up my alley.  I enjoy editing pictures, and have been working on a stack of pictures I've scanned lately.  This challenge takes you out of the photographer role and lets you completely focus on the edit.  A picture is supplied in SOOC (straight out of camera) form and you give it your magic editing touch. 

Here's the picture for this week.


And here's my edit.


I used Picnik.com to do my edits.  I added a vignette and notched the vibrancy up to ninety-eight percent.  I also added a texture layer that looked like yellowed paper.  Once the texture was added I hit the photo with one final layer of vignette and vibrancy.
