This should have been a Friday Before-After Challenge thing, but I did not read the rules.. Sorry, Stacey!
Anyway, the above is the original image…
The image below is the one that I finally ended up with…
So, what did I do?
I converted the image into a smart object.
The entire edit was done using Nik’s Color Efex Pro, thereafter
Step One. I used the “Foliage Filter” using the drop down in the Nature set of presets, and then I used a green look
Step Two. I added a “Fog Filter”
Step Three. Going to the Portrait Section, I added a pastel filer
Step Six. I added a vignette. The fun here, was that I changed the colour of the vignette.
Step Seven. The Last. I exported it back to Photoshop, and made some global changes in the HSL slider. And, that was it
