I loved this image as soon as I shot it.
But, I also wanted to touch it up and do a few cool post-processing things to it.
I am loving how this little ornament is adding to my last couple of photos.
I got this idea from a page I saw somewhere about photo projects and it suggested finding a small item that shouldn’t be there and bringing it along to serve as a foreground object.
Well, I decided to incorporate a little of this into the Christmas theme. So far, he’s a very fun little guy!
Now, this is not to suggest that I will be including him in all my photos – I mean I DO have a trip to Asheville planned, along with the Grove Park Inn where the National Gingerbread Competition is on display, as well as the Biltmore House.
It’s just that I like to add a different spin on the Christmas slant, you know?
As for what I actually did to this photo, I added a green color overlay after the fact – you know, for Christmas-effect.
