Classic beauty in a magical and natural environment. What I love about this image is that she is incorporated into the natural environment and you can really feel all the textures and layers. Plus, the image reads like a story when you move from right-to-left, creating a dreamlike story sequence.
In this edit, I reduced my highlights and made several creative crops to reach the desired composition to emphasize the story. Next, which is one of my favorite things to do in editing, I created tonal separation to make the elements in the image pop. Finally, I used color balance layers with greens and reds to create contrast and bring out the natural environment to create a dreamlike, magical image.
