Before and After...Grand Canyon edition



It was noon when we arrived at the Grand Canyon.
The sun was a blazin' down.
I was sad.
I know it happens to be the worst time to take pictures.
Oh well, what can you do?
Nothing, but take pictures!
Here is my before.
Yes, I know...
S-girl's backside is cute as a button.
And yet, for me, it is a tad distracting.
Well, hello clone tool.
You are such a smart little thing!

Here's a post card just for you!

Greetings from the Grand Canyon.
We are having lots of fun and many adventures.
I puked all night, but look at me now.
I hope you have a really great day!
~Sincerely,
J-boy



Hike on over to Pixel Perfect for more before and after fun.
This picture was edited in Photoshop Elements.

You're a cloaning machine! Loved the postcard.
I am so jealous right now! I'm about to get kids up and ready for school, the chaos begins! I'd so rather be vacationing! :)

No he did not puke all night. Poor thing. HOpe everyone stays healthy and that the adventure continues full speed ahead. Great shot. Love the edit.

Arizona Mamma said...

How on earth do you do the clone tool so well? I am such a lost cause, Julie. I know how to use the clone tool, but it always looks like I used it! I think you just have far more patience than I do!

Christy said...

You've got some mad cloning skills! Hope that you're having a wonderful trip, and I hope that J-boy feels better soon. : )

laney said...

The edit is a completely different shot. I kept going back and forth between the two to realize what you did. Awesome!

Also, you vacation shots are amazing. It looks like you're having a great time.

Sonora said...

Wow! This is impressive. What a beautiful photo and the editing is awesome. I can't believe you did that on vacation. I'm thinking it would have taken me hours and few naughty words. I love the clone tool, but am still trying to get the hang of it. Love your trip updates!

Tara said...

This is great! I need to learn how to use that tool!

You did great on the edit. I usually stink at using the clone tool.

Wow. You're amazing! And funny, too : ) I really, really, need to learn how to use that clone tool. I think I just get overwhelmed with photoshop sometimes. I want to learn more about it, but I just don't want to take the TIME to learn...argh.
