This is most of my steps:
Started adjusting the curves and levels to improve contrast and pop the couple better.
I then added 2 textures from Jessica Drossin, "dante's campfire" and "murmur", both from the latest texture pack. I've said it before and I'll say it again....Jessica's textures ROCK. For that matter, using any textures in the right way will take your photos to a whole new level of ART!
I did a little urban processing to bring out the cool tones, then lastly added a sunflare layer from the Kaleidoscope pack from Patti Brown. I just recently got these, and haven't played with them too much yet.
I basically wanted the couple to stand out more, to bring out the background too, but with a 'halo' of light to draw the eye to the couple. This was such a great image to start with, and fun to edit such a beautiful twosome!
Wish I could have been there on the original shoot!
Have a look at the rest of the photos that were submitted at I heart faces!
