Aqua greetings – ProjectEdit365 – 15 July

For some reason the file is very small, but I wanted to edit it anyway. The original photo was pretty green. I lowered the contrast and increased the clarity and vibrancy. I sharpened the photo and took out enough noise to reduce a lot of the graininess. If you go too high with the noise reduction though you lose clarity.  I used an adjustment brush around her eyes to sharpen those. The rest of the edit was working with the temperature and the individual color sliders (aqua and green, mostly) to get the color of the water where I wanted it (and to make her skin still look natural). The original:

You can still take a low res photo and make it look better!
