I was recently asked to take portraits of
a family. It was a really fun day. They
all dressed up in costumes, and we walked
10 minutes into a local forest to take
the photos. I'll post another from our magical day!

**Post Pro**
- added a glow around the crystal ball by using the outer glow effect.
- added the stars by selecting a star brush, then adding the otter glow effect to them too.
- lastly, I added a lens flare at the tip of the wand.

A fairy-like magical scene, what would the crystal ball tell me, hope something nice:-))
I like the position of the hands and the green wood behind it, even the part of the clothes we see, is the right combination. You did fine work with the glow around the ball and the stars flying around, a funny picture and all in a nice square, Pamela

Very nice scene. I like your PP work, Pamela!

Reminds me of role playing games... Were they trying to play LOTR? Good DOF here. And good use of filters too... ;)!

I am not sure about the wand, the flare is not entirely in view... maybe a less thight crop? Then again, I wonder if it would have been a stronger picture thenm...

Hi, I think this is a really magical shot, I like the DOF and the effects you added in PP. But my favorite thing about this picture is the reflections.

Thanks for sharing!
