As part of my photography module I had to take pictures and do some slight manipulation on them using Photoshop. Here are the end results.
I used Curves and Colour Balance

With a New Year Comes a New Colour

2013 is making us GREEN with envy. We are saying goodbye to last year’s Tangerine Tango and hello to this year’s emerald green. Pantone.com announced late last year that this would be the colour of the year.

"Lively. Radient. Lush.....A colour of Elagence & Beauty
and Enhance our sense of wellbeing, Balence and Harmony"
Gucci S/S 13

We will most defiantly see the high street laced with this colour as we move more into 2013. Emerald Green seen in Spring /Summer runway collections of Gucci, Burberry, Michael Kor's, Sportsmax, Kenzo. Even Vera Wang shows her love for this colour in her collection of dark green with gold trim dresses. This colour was rocking coats, dresses, tops, skirts, shoes, accessories, nails and we could even see a return of that green eyeliner. As far as celeb followings go, the duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton is already a step ahead of us, she has been wearing Emerald hues for the past year and her most recent was the Mulberry silk Emerald dress which she wore to the opening of the Treasury Gallery in November. This makes me think did Pantone.com get there inspiration from Kate Middleton rather than the catwalks.
