A Hot Pink Tint

This is a picture I took a couple weeks ago with one of my daughter's teacups.  I was trying to take a cool macro of it but it didn't turn out how I had envisioned, so it sat in my folder waiting to be deleted.


Then last night I was bored so I started playing around with the tints in Picnik for Shutterlove Tuesday photo challenge "tint", and thought I would use this pic because I was going to throw it out anyway.  

I straightened, cropped, brightened, contrast, reduced noise, and made B & W first before I added a hot pink tint to it, cuz pink is my favorite color (name that song).  Might have also added cross process to it, looks a little warmer than a hot pink, but can't remember.  Oh yeah, and a slight vignette too (I was really messing around with it).


I think it turned out real cool, so glad I didn't push delete.
