Touch Up Tuesday: Bokeh layers

SOOC:

First Edit:

First Edit: I ran my Brightness/Contrast action that I created first. And, added a soft light blend to a High Pass layer to really pop it out. I also used the clone tool to get rid of the black spot in the upper left corner.

Second Edit:

Second Edit: I wanted to really play with my photoshop today... so, I went ahead and added some pretty bokeh layers! I added 6 different layers. All with either a Hard Light or Screen blend and I also made sure to erase the area of each bokeh layer over the lavender. Just so I wouldn't lose the pop of the lavender. AND.... that's it! :D

If you're interested in the pretty bokeh textures that I used... I downloaded them from here: Bokeh Life Textures. There are 10 different bokehs's. Very pretty. Free.



Photography love...
