I have this photo, and I really want to give it some kind of dreamy vintage processing... Totally not my specialty. lol...

I thought I'd post it up and see what you all would do with it in terms of color/vintage/?? I have an idea in my head, but just can't get it to land where my vision lies.. lol..

Here's the image. If you play with it, please share the steps involved to achieve your end result. I'd really like to learn something here.

Thanks a bunch! :)

Here are two takes. In both I boosted saturation, added noise, then played with selective color to get the two variants.

vintage can be in in black and white. with selective Gaussian blur on the back ground. Easily done.

Yeah, real vintage would have to be in b&w.

I disagree. There is a weird outline added to the top of the main bouquet, and the random splotches of color in the back look odd.

I went for more of a dreamy edit than vintage since there seems to be quite a few vintage attempts...

flower (external link) by robertwsimpson (external link), on Flickr

1. USM sharpening
2. duplicate layer, gausian blur, blending mode to brighter color
3. adjustment layer, brightness +20, contrast +15
4. adjustment layer, saturation -35 (use layer mask to bring back a little color in the flowers)
5. slight vignette

hope you like!

WOW! Thanks guys for playing... I really appreciate it.... I think my vision starts somewhere along the lines of robertwsimpson's dreamy version, and then a little yellow-ish vintage feeling afterwards maybe...

I'm into the girly-softness of the dreamy part... lol.. :lol:

I will try to recreate that as my starting point.. robert, can you tell me about your guassian blur step? Do you remember how much blur, what opacity and what the actual blending mode used?

Then I like the yellow-aged look of Fritz... I think.. without the added grain. I think in the end I will find a texture to overlay, but will mask off parts of the flower softly...

Thoughts? This is kind a fun though. I never ask people to edit my photos, so it's neat to see the vision through other eyes. :) THANK YOU for playing along! :D

with the full resolution image, you might need a larger blur though.
