Before and After

Thought I would post a before and after shot of an image that I warmed up in a style reminiscent of Michelle Kane.  She uses a lot of warm, rich tones that give her images a unique fine art appeal. Here is how I did it. The first image is SOOC brought into ACR for some minor tweaks. I warmed up the image increasing the white balance, decreasing overall brightness, and increasing the blacks. Then I brought the image into photoshop and used selective color to bring out the rich tones in the background only. I ran a Michelle Kane action called Bland to Brilliant to give the photo more pop and then sharpened for web. Would love to hear your comments!
