Before/After Pixel Perfect

A friend of mine sent a picture over to me to see what I would do with it.  That friend is Jen over at The "J" Family.  She took this picture (so it belongs to her) and you can read more about the Bridal Shower this picture was taken at over at her blog (she's a newbie so show her some love).  So I decided to link up this picture and write what I did...


For the Edit:
~  Edited in CS5
~  First I opened up the Selective Color tool adding more cyan to the blue and cyan tones (because I knew the actions I was going to use would make the water dull)
~  Then I ran Paint the Moon's Free Strawberries and Cream Action leaving the opacity as it was
~  Lastly I ran The Paper Mama's Pacific NW Blend using only the Light White Group and lowering the opacity on every layer until I was satisfied.
