    Okay girls here is a challenge for ya. I have this photo of bittersweet in my yard. If I had a professional camera and knew how to actual take a good photo this shot would have come out as I wanted, probably with minimal editing. OR maybe not.
    In my head I see this with the bittersweet berries popping and distinctive with an ethereal feel to the image/ background. However all my photoshop work is giving me too much color popping or too much blurriness so I can't see the berries. Anyone want to try it?
    Here is the original.

    And one of my hundred attempts to achieve what I am looking for. This one I think is a little too blurry and the berries look out of focus. IMO

      I don't have any ethereal brushes or layers or anything. I think you are going to find that Jennifer, Lisa, Mandy or Debbie are going to come up with something that will knock your socks off. This is all I could do with what I have.

        It's been quite awhile since I've done any photo manips…but I'll play around and see what I can come up with 🙂

        "Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

          Love that Jennifer! Ya know what? This would look great on a card.

          I really need to look around for some free frames and things to give me that ethereal finish.

          Here is the first one with nothing but sharpening. I did not do anything with it:

              ohhh Mellisa, that is really pretty. I want to see more of your photoshop magic.

              #72425

              ok…here are my tries.
              one color corrected
              one Orton effect with lightening it up
              one ethereal glow with a bit of bokeh and diffuse glow…
