Shoot and Edit Challenge: Yellow (after)

The lovely and talented Ashley and Jill have teamed together to share their awesome photo editing tips and tricks; this week’s prompt/theme is yellow so I used a photo of some pretty yellow pansies that I took in the garden section at Lowes.  To be honest, I really liked the SOOC, so I only did a few minor tweaks in Picnik:
  1. Manually adjusted the temperature balance to make the overall tones a little warmer.
  2. Ran an action in which the shadows were darkened slightly (I am totally spacing on the name).
  3. I then applied "boost" at about 40%.
  4. Lastly, I attempted to erase some of the flower tags using the clone function; it's not the best job but I did this late last night after a full day of driving and let's just say good enough was totally fine by me.
Here's a side-by-side comparison:

I agree- your SOOC didn't need much so I'm glad you kept it simple!
