Back in July I shot with DivasCorner we shot for 135 minutes and ended up with 158 usable images. My first cut brings it down to 62 images.

My favorite image is Set 10 Image 11, at first I was going to reject it for being too dark but decided to try and polish it.

When I polished S10-11 I brought the overall lightness up and the color saturation down. I brought a hit of the saturation back on the sheet that DivasCorner is using to cover herself. I then used a mask to preserve the detail around DivasCorner while I added lens blur to add depth. Finally I went around the corners removing some of the lightness I had previously added to create a subtle vignette.

I really like this image.
