before and after

Here is my before and after for today!

This is actually an old photo, from a trip to Buenos Aires, Argentina last May.  This was a lovely ranch we went to for the day, where a gaucho played guitar for us.  Here’s the out of camera jpeg.

And here’s the edit.  I love it as a black and white!  I used photoshop cs3 on this, and a black and white action.

  3. I really love the first picture it looks good in B&W, but I guess because I’m feeling spring-y I like the first one.

  5. He’s got a great face! I like it SOOC! The colors are fun! But, the black and white leads my eyes to his face a little more! You do such pretty stuff!

  10. I like pulling out older photo’s and playing with them. 🙂 Cool pic! Like the black and white, but I’m with Mrs.Clause! I’m feeling springey and digging the color. 🙂
