FIX-IT FRIDAY - Contemplation - I wonder


This is my second attempt at a fix-it and again I am pretty pleased with it :D I think I can actually edit pictures better than I take them!! When I played with the cropping and made him look upwards I felt that he looked as if he were sky-gazing and with the colours as I've set him it's as if he is watching the sunset.  


The blank space definately needed words - as others have done, but I felt it didn't need much - his face says it all.

So, what did I do..? Now that's the tough bit - remembering!
I know I did auto-exposure, then rotated and cropped. 
I played with the colours until I found what I liked.
There was a little sharpening and then a touch of softening.
I used the clone tool to remove the tear, as although I liked it, it didn't fit with my 'look' very well.
I warm-sepia-d the background (sepia, reverse & then paint the background)
Used the Matt effect (action) and chose the pinky colour for the edges.
Added the words.
Lastly, added the 'reflection' border - tweeked it - saved it - added a second!

I may have done other things too, but the ones I've detailed were definately the main ones. It's hard to remember what else I've done - I just click about until I see what pleases me :D

Hope you like it - PLEASE give me feedback - I'm pretty new to all this and need all the advice I can get!!

Caroline.
