A Candle Touch Up

candle edited
My edit today is done in Adobe Photoshop CS2 that I have had installed in my computer for several years but never learned how to use it.    Today's edit  is using Pioneer Woman’s actions of Lovely and Ethereal and Quick Edge Burn.  I like how these actions warmed up the photo.
Thank you to  Chelsey at Paper Heart Camera for the opportunity to learn new touch up techniques.    Have a wonderful Christmas.   Valerie
