I cropped and used some BW actions, brighter & sharpen in PTS
I used black n white along with masking to get the eye trained on the subject vs the background

Fabulous work! Keep those amazing pages coming!
I cropped it very close to get rid of the mobile fire pit and blurred the background a little.
I converted the photo to black and white, then cropped it.
Here is my photo in its original state
and my page. I played with actions to stylize my photo and play on the fact it was not in focus.
I am so happy I played with this challenge. I lighted the large background picture and then I cleaned the picture and then I put a Soft Light Blend on the background paper. I then placed a lightening on the pictures that are inside the pockets. I strategically placed the pictures in the pockets to crop out unwanted added spots on the pictures, and I also used the clustering of elements on top of the pockets so that I can hide the visitors in the pictures.
As a result of this challenge, now I want to go back to the imperfect photos I have that I just couldn't delete because they're the only ones for an event but thought they weren't good enough to scrap. So, now I'm looking at them differently and I love that. Thanks!
the original was a bit dim so edited it using lots of different photoshop actions, to brighten it up. and to achieve its look, i duplicated the photo and converted to black and white and then used blending mode to make the colors underneath show through.
I edited the photo using vscocam and photoshop. I lightened/brightened it, cropped it, made it less grainy, and blurred the background a bit to pull focus on the foreground.

I crop and cut it :
I took this photo last summer in Copenhagen and the background wasn't the best but the bike was awesome
The original photo was taken in a movie theater, in the dark, with an iPhone... so it definitely needed fixing!
(ugh... sorry it's so HUGE! I really don't know how to get it smaller)
I fixed the shadows, gave it a black & white effect, and adjusted the brightness, resulting in the picture featured in my layout
On New Year's Eve I made a lot of photos with a simple point and shoot camera that were of low quality, blurry, out of focus and with a lot of uninteresting background. So I've cropped them, lightened some of them to make them the same as the rest and placed them all together in a pocket protector on one page so it's more about the memory than the quality of the photos.
I took this picture of my cup of coffee with my tablet: it's tilted, resolution is bad not to mention the coloring:
So I adjusted levels, to have some better contrast, cropped and made the photo BW.
Here's my imperfect photos:
To "fix" the photos, I adjusted the levels, cropped out some distracting things, and made them black and white.
Here's my layout!
