Is anyone else as ready for the weekend as I am?!  Whew, I feel like I’ve been running and running.  The last couple of weeks have been extremely stressful work wise, and now that it’s calmed down, I’m able to really look forward to the weekend!  Plus, I’m getting my hair done tomorrow –

Yesterday for my {SOOC} challenge, I linked up a shot I took last Friday on our way to Omaha.  I wanted to see what I could do with it, edit wise, especially after a commenter said they couldn’t wait to see my edit:

I added a gradient to it, adjusted the colors and saturation using the preset edits that PSE9 has.  This actually made it look like spring is coming (see the hints of green in the grass – whoa!).

I thought it was still missing a little something, so I added Kim Klassen’s Warmsun texture, set at hard light at 35% opacity.

More of the look I was going for!
