Carolyn Eliason Photography

A Monthly Themed Photo Blog

Week 30 #45 Full Edit


Its gardenia blooming time here in Southwest Florida and my plant just outside my lanai is full of sweet fragrant blossoms.  Like so many blooming plants, the flowering season is short, only a few weeks, so if you are lucky enough to have a plant, you enjoy every precious scented minute.

A “Full Edit” to a photo in my opinion means, give it the works.  Adjust lighting, clarity, shadows, vibrance, whites and blacks, remove distractions, boost colors, sharpen image and in this image I added a slight vignette to soften the background.

I have always enjoyed photography, but with encouragement from family and friends over years I began to realize I really love it! This blog began in 2014 as a weekly themed blog with a group mainly located here in Florida. That group no longer exists so I decided to switch things up to a monthly themed blog. Thanks for following me over the years and if your new, I hope you enjoy my photos. 😊
