Day 15: Technology

Day 15: Technology
The Edit Me Challenge is back! Woo Hoo. I love the Edit Me Challenge. I have learned so much from it and I look forward in participating with it again.
The Challenge involves editing a picture. Everyone edits the same picture for the month then we link back to the Challenge Page.  It is amazing to see how many edits can be done on one picture.
So with the technology of the computer I have edited the picture provided by Stephanie.
Here is my edit.

Here is the original.

I of course didn't write down everything I did. Of course it would have been grand if I did, but well I was rushing and I'll give you a few of the things I know I did.
adjusted levels
added a gradient map
made a screen layer
added a sepia toning
make a lighting adjustment layer
did a quick brush on a 10% occupancy to clean up any noise
This picture made me think of a little girl playing hide and go seek or peek-a-boo. I thought it would be fun to convert to black and white and give it a vintage feel.  I like the overall feel of the finished edit.  The Challenge goes through the end of the month so swing by and try it out for yourself.
