Pretty Pastels...

Three Roses. David Hayes, 2015.

Not my usual thing...pretty pastels. But sometimes a guy just has to step out of the box and given such a thing a try. Pretty pastels...with a dreamy backlight look. That's what the latest Be Still 52 prompt asked us to take on. So here are my images...

Three Roses was shot with my DSLR and processed in Lightroom. After doing my usual adjustments, I applied a Kim Klassen preset called "pastelhaze". 

Roses and Eggs. David Hayes, 2015.

A similar workflow with this image with an added step of opening it in Photoshop and applying a Kim Klassen texture called "Simple 1". 

Don't know how much of "pretty pastels" I can take...even still, I am pleased with my results. Hallmark Cards...are you looking for some new images? Give me a call!
