Monica from Pixel Perfect is hosting the Before and After Blog Hop again this week and I am excited to participate. I've been playing with my PSE a lot this week, trying to get to know it a little better, and have started playing with actions as well.
A couple weekends ago we went down to Boston to visit the New England Aquarium and I got some great shots of the area. It was a gorgeous day so we had a bright blue sky and plenty of time to walk around outside. Right next to the aquarium, on Long Wharf, sits this landmark: Custom House Block
To get this result, using PSE 7, I cropped the photo, saturated the colors, slide the levels slider to the right then used Coffee Shop's vintage news action. I changed the action a little bit - adjusted the vignetting away from the center and played with the color a little bit. I like it!
