Photo Edits: Before & After

This is the first of a new (hopefully) weekly series where I’m going to highlight a photo that I’ve retouched and show the before and after versions.  Any comments or opinions would be appreciated.

And here are the edits I applied to the photo in order:

1.  Rotated the image slightly and cropped in a bit.

2.  Adjusted the white balance to warm it.

3.  Increased the contrast just a tad and increased vibrancy a lot.

4.  Applied a vignette around the edges with a large radius and large intensity.

5.  Sharpened since it was a raw image.
