MM Monday 9

 

My original picture.  Went to picnik, desaturated, changed to black and white.  Didn't like that so chose the Sepia tone instead.  Went up on contrast and saturation.  Cropped the picture. Added the vignette and this is the outcome.

Wasn't really happy with this so went back.  Cropped some more and went up on exposure.

  3. 2 and 3 are both an improvement on No. 1, but I seem to go for No. 2 - the cottage looks so homely when it is smaller.

  12. The minute I saw the third one I said out loud, "that's pretty." I agree with you here that sepia was the better choice. This is a dance 10 all the way. 8=)

    Thanks for coming by and commenting. Sorry I'm so late getting back to you.

  13. The second one looks like it hs an ageless, timeless quality about it. The third one has a sort of dreamy look to it. Both are good.
