Snow photo playtime

I had the brilliant idea that Emma should wear a flowing red dress with a red scarf and stand out in the snow…the wind blowing her hair, dress and scarf. Sounds good but it really didn’t work out. It was way too cold to catch this idea on film! Only one photo turned out half way decent so I didn’t have much to edit from this failed shoot…so I decided to play with this one pic and try some different actions on it. I haven’t played with actions in a while so it was fun!

Here’s the SOOC camera photo, not so great, huh?

And here’s my clean edit, cropped, with a nice pop. I’d say this would be my final image if I was going to have one printed.

So, which edit do you like? I’d love to hear anyone’s opinions!


  1. I love them all.. I am addicted to actions LOL. I would have to say that my absolute favorite is the Seventies.. I love it. It reminds me of the old print ads in my Moms magazines.

  2. My favorite would be Heartland. I know how it is being in the freezing cold trying to take pictures, not the best idea I've had!! :)

  3. I love the vintage one! :):) They are all so pretty though.
    What program do you use to edit?

  4. Annie...I use PSE6 but I should be getting photoshop any day now!
