|Happy New Year!!! (2012)|
If 2011 has been a little rough for you as it has been for many this year, remember that New Year's Eve represents an ending, while at the same time it also represents a new beginning. As the clock strikes twelve you can set new goals, fix wrongs or just make your life a little more meaningful by helping someone else who needs it. And, even if you have had a great 2011, may you have an even better New Year in 2012.
I edited the above photograph using Adobe Photoshop CS5 Bridge. I moderately increased the Color Temperature, Contrast and the Blacks of the image. Then I moderately decreased the Clarity and Color Saturation to give the image a slightly dreamy look. When using a digital photo editor remember to have fun. Try different configurations to learn what works and how to use them. Also, remember to always save your edited image with a different file name so you can preserve the original photograph for future editing. I can promise you one thing; you will be pleased and amazed at what you can produce in a digital photo editor.
New Year's Eve is observed on December 31, the final day of any given year in the Gregorian calendar. New Year's Eve is ofter celebrated at social gatherings, during which participants dance, eat, consume alcoholic beverages and watch or light fireworks to mark the incoming year.
