Anyway, here's one of the recent ones - I don't know why, but this original sparked a need for a "hand shot" of these guys during their vows. I honestly started looking for a ring exchange picture, but this one got me for some reason. So, I decided there was no harm in trying to "fancify" (I know, it's not really a word.) this one up.
Disclaimer: I did not take these pictures! They are here for a "makeover". Go here to find out the whole story.
The original image is really nice - I love their location because it gives this "buttery" out-of focus effect to the trees behind, giving a fantastic background for their ceremony, the color is just beautiful. I just decided to crop it much closer and see what happened...
The only problem with cropping closer is having to get rid of a few distracting parts...the microphone stand, the woman's arm, etc...
Zoomed, cloned out excess.
Added a paper texture and a quote that reflected my feeling of what the picture was saying to me - that - well, basically "all that matters is this moment, the here and now - all that matters is us!" Here's the final image:
I thought I was finished with this one, and I accidentally hit a button to "wash out" the color in the image. I sort of liked it - not better than the final I came up with, but enough to include it here. What do you think?
