I tried to get just a few Easter things out because I wanted to join Tricia @ A Rosy Note for her Photo Feature Friday. Then I had to go get candy because well, I can’t take a picture of a candy dish with no candy. I didn’t have great light in the house by the time I got back so I just got a couple of shots off. And now I’m late for the party. What else is new huh?

high pass is something new to me, I’m still learning.
This one I wasn’t too sure about when I first saw it.
But I think it came out pretty good.
Hover your mouse over the picture to see the before.
cropped, brightness +74 contrast +8, high I know but then I masked out the whole picture with black so that it was like it was not there. Next I took a soft white brush and brought back the brightness on just the flowers and stem. Lowered the opacity to 50% and then softened the edges.
Then I increased the saturation +15.
Can you see the difference? I couldn’t really see the flowers all that well in the before.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter holiday.
