I decided to choose this effect as it gives the image a more romantic feel for example the light is more clam and show the contrast of thecolours around them. I also chose this because it looks like the season is Autumn.
Now I wanted to have a blurred effect or a motion effect where the focus is on my characters.What I did isgo to andanother effecton the toolbarcalled FilterGallery whichallows me tocreate aneffect of mychoice.

I also made the image darker togive the image depth and mystery.
