Today's Image Recipe - applied to both photos.

In Lightroom....

Cropped then Auto-toned .... then applied my preset 'let there be light'. 

In Photoshop...

I added 2 layers of waterfront 28. One at color burn blend mode 59% opacity and the other at soft light 65% opacity.


Click HERE to download a sample version of Waterfront 28.

The script on the canola field is quickpen and the type is rough typewriter.


I've had a lot of emails regarding workflow from LR to PS. Below are a few video tutorials that may be helpful.

I've also had several emails asking about applying textures in LR. Unfortunately LR does not support layers. You have to use an external editor such as Elements or Photoshop. (other options such as PicMonkey and GIMP are avaialbe online, but I have not tried these).

Oh my, your photos are simply breathtaking...and thank you for all the videos you shared. The quote in your second image are wise words to live by, for me, anyway. Sending you wishes for a wonderful Tuesday, Kim. xo

Kim, Your photos for today are truly beautiful representations of nature as you see it - light filled. Thank you for the information on the fonts, too. My Wish List grows! I just finished watching the videos and they are so helpful! I am finally getting the transitions between LR and Photoshop, thanks to you!

Every time I see something processed in Lightroom I ask I need to get Lightroom? I don't even know all the ins and outs of Elements! I do love the bottom image with the happy yellow flowers and that terrific light.
