Sometimes photo of flowers can be a little dark and could use a little brightening to make them pop. Such was the case with this photo of roses that was captured where they sat just inside the open door of a market. (Figure 1)
 
This is a quick and easy technique that you can have a lot of fun with while trying it on various photos. To find the glowing edges click filters, click styles and then click the glowing edges. For this example The setting were set to the following:
Edge with 4
Edge Brightness 20
Smoothness 9
 
Now you will see a black image with bright colored lines running around the edges of the flowers. Then go to edit, click on fade and adjust the slider to your taste. The fade on this example was set to 27%. This was followed by a little color burn on parts of the roses (Figure 2). At this point you can add any touch ups that you think will enhance your final image further.

The Surf Was Up At Nauset Light Beach On Cape Cod!

The waves were perfect for surfing at Nauset Light Beach in Eastham and the surfers were out trying to catch that “perfect wave.” It was great fun watching them all, especially on a cold, windy day in the middle of winter. Dedication!
