This week’s #52Snapshots of Life theme is “Flag“. We missed Flag Day by a bit, but we still had our flag flying here!
I had a little fun with the editing on this one. I liked the original photo, but I wanted to highlight the subjects a little more and I thought the background was a little distracting. First of all I used Photoshop to crop the photo, and then added an effect called “desaturate green”. That was as far as I could get with that program, so I opened up the modified photo in Picmonkey where I added an effect called “burst” but faded the effect out quite a bit so it only added some subtle highlights. I loved the serious expression on Luke’s face so just had to add those words.
If you’re interested, here’s the original photo. Which do you like best?
