Photo Recipe {Using Veils to Eliminate Winter Drab}

February 21, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

This has been a cruel winter - harsh and cold and persistent.

I worry so much about all of the young trees we planted last year.  

I'm not sure if they are strong enough to handle some of the temperatures the South has faced this season.

This is one of my lime trees.  

I was so proud to have picked about 12 beautiful limes last fall.

The ice was aggressive and so clearly damaging that I can only hope and wait for spring to show me if this little guy will make it.

There is beauty in watching something grow, and it's hard to watch something that you nurture and cultivate struggle to thrive. 

The color and tone in the before photo is indicative of our winter.  Drab and dreary.

I played around a bit with an overlay to see if I could liven things up a bit!

I ran one simple Photoshop action, Love that Shot's Veil Infusion Blast.

The veil I chose was Wheatgrass from the Botanical Veils Collection.

Here is how it looks with different blending modes.

Soft light and hard light had a similar effect.

But, the overlay mode really did the trick!
