The Force is with us

My husband is a huge Star Wars fan and is bringing up the girls in the learning of the Force. So this household was very sad to hear of the passing of Carrie Fisher. Last year we found these cookie cutters and all our Christmas cookies were especially shaped. They looked even better after being decorated.

Cookies cut out in the shape of Star Wars characters. Not So SAHM
Carrie Fisher in memoriam – ProjectEdit365 – 29 Dec

I wasn’t sure how I could edit the batch of cookies, but I managed to make some changes. I cropped in to eliminate some of the surroundings. I increased the contrast and lightened the blacks and shadows, but decreased the clarity and lowered the highlights. I adjusted the tone curve and added a small vignette. I also adjusted the vertical position of the photo under the Transform slider so the cookies would be easier to see. Here is the original:

  1. I would have cropped tighter (just the cookies) and would have tried a high contrast b&w. This family was up in space last night, watching Star Trek – Into darkness. Tonight we have Star Trek – Beyond. Even my wife didn’t fall asleep (which she often does when we watch movies 😉). Your cookies would go well with this. Have a great day!
