Before & After at Pixel Perfect

It Before & After time at the Pixel Perfect blog - my favorite link-up of the week!!

before


after #1 - I like it, I think it's dramatic and I played with the layers for a long time to try to get it very soft but still with a clear focus on the berries. But it wasn't really what I'd invisioned so I erased the background and softened the black some more.


after #2 -I played around with the crop a bit and got these versions too.




Which one do you like best?

Ooh, creative crops! I like the second one from the bottom, the wide/short one. It really puts the focus on the fruit.

Faith said...

I really like that one too!

Lula Lola said...

Courtney said...

Very cool! I'm really not sure which I like best. They are all so unique. Great edits!

I like that last one the best. Great job. How did you get all of it blurred except for the berries? And the white backdrop really changes it. Can you give us a tutorial? Stop by and see my silouette. http://weloveiowa.blogspot.com/2010/06/before-after-silouettes.html
