PicMonkey Monday: Frontierland Wooden Indian

It's PicMonkey Monday!  In this new series I'll give you a before and after look at some of my photography as I learn to play with some photo editing.  Tori and I just bought a PicMonkey.com subscription, so I've been playing with filters and trying to learn what things do.  I've never done much photo editing, mostly because I don't own photo shop and was raised taking pictures in a film environment.  In a way editing really seems like cheating to me, but I've come to learn that many of my favorite photographers edit their work fairly heavily.   I thought maybe I should give up my high horse and move on into the 21st century at some point. 

Today we have an artsy attempt and making my image of the wooden Indian in Frontierland look old. As with most things Disney he's in excellent condition and looks brand new, even though he's been there as long as I can remember.  I was perfectly happy with the original image and wasn't trying to "fix" it, this was just something artsy to kill time.  First I put a daguerreotype filter on it, then soft focus, next I added a papyrus texture, then a sketchedy frame.

Which one do you like better?  Before or after? Leave a comment and let me know!
