Week 48 good to WOW Edit Holiday

Today I am guest posting over at Ashley's blog Ramblings and Photos...the first photo blog I started reading.  Please do visit me over there.  I have learned so much about editing photos from her weekly tutorials, and I really enjoy using what I've learned.   All of her tutorials really came in handy with this week's photo:

Original:

Edit:
Since my tutorial is kind of wordy, I'll skip all the steps I did with this photo.  Suffice to say that I used almost every tip we learned in this last year during Shoot and Edit, plus I cropped to a 5x7 aspect ratio because that is the size I'll be printing and it framed them better.  Last year at this time my family would have just gotten the original...and been pretty happy with it.

If you are someone who, say, just bought Photoshop Elements, starting with the first of Ashley's tutorial posts and working your way through them is a great way to learn your new program and how to edit photos to boot.
