Head on over to:

AJ’s blog Endless Light Creations to see a *truly* beautiful edit on this image!! I just love it so much that I have to link there so others can see how great of a job she did!

I also really like Tiffany’s edit here on her June Makes Six blog. She did a wonderful job and it really does look like an old time photo and something you’d see in a ‘history of our town’ book or something from like the 1800’s.

    I love both edits, but I think the 1st is my favorite. I love the darker, rich colors.

    Goes to show you how much different people have different tastes… But the second one is my favorite edit. I love the vintage feel to the photo… 😉
