These pictures were harder than I thought they would be. They have all been edited with levels and other adjustments including sharpness and saturation layers. Rexburg weather has not been the best, and I kept waiting for it to get sunny so I could take some lighter pictures, but they almost all came out gray. The Lilac bush is in the parking lot of Allen’s Sunrise, and another one (the Close-Up) was taken by an elementary school. When I was at the elementary school, it was really windy, and so I didn’t get as good of focus as I would have liked, but I think they turned out ok. There are two pictures that use layer mask with the levels layer, that is the Squirrel where it is masked out around the squirrel to bring him out, and the other is on the closed flowers where the mask is around the flower to make that pop.
