Hello Gorgeous Colour Challenge

As I was reading over blog posts this morning, I came across this brand new photo challenge posted by Hello Gorgeous.  When I saw the photo, I knew right away what I would do to it... so I did.
This was a color pallet challenge (I left off the pallets to get a better fit in the frames).  I used the pink from the pallet to give the edit more of a sunset type feel to it.  I used the green to go back over some of the trees and grass to highlight. And did a soft layer of the lightest grey.  I also added a gaussian blur to give it that dreamy fairy tale look.  I softened the foreground so the focus would be on the water and bridge.  Finally, I used The Coffee Shop Blog's Perfect Portrait 2 for my final touches.
I hope that my edit comes across like the image that I was trying for.  Since this is the first time that I have ever done a color pallet challenge I would LOVE any feedback that anyone might have to offer.


  1. I love what you have done with the edit, it give the scene a dreamlike feel.
