I always get so anxious to get my post up that I feel rushed to finish my edits. I tried to slow down a little today and played with a few versions of my photo.
Clean edit with radial blur added. I moved the starter point of the blur (wondering if there’s an official name for that) to where his hands would be. I then brushed over his hands to remove the blur there and added text. (Probably should try this one with the cropped version.)
Finally, I started once again with the clean edit (without the crop as you can see) then applied Pioneer Woman’s Vintage action, removed some of the vignette and added text. Apparently this one is my favorite because when I look at it my throat tightens and a tear comes to my eye.
Yes, it must truly be my favorite because this particular little “angel” has been a stinker all morning and in fact starting kicking at my laptop with his feet just as I finished this edit – and I didn’t throttle him. I may need to make copies of this photo and plaster them all over the house today.
I can’t wait to see the other “faith” photos and am about to click the button.
