Do you think its possible to 'over edit'? (yeah, I made up that term, so?) I don't really think so.  Especially if its your own picture.  I think this is a beautiful SOOC (straight out of camera) shot.
But I also love the way you can transform one picture into a completely different one.
My secret behind editing?  Use the undo button.  Think you like it?  try it, click apply, look at it.  Minimize the window and come back in a couple of minutes.  Still like it?  keep it; if not hit undo.  Its an amazing button with much possibility.  Click lots of buttons.  It's great to have your 'normal' edits, but every now and then challenge yourself to take a beautiful SOOC picture and see what YOU can transform it into!  Still not totally sure what I'm going to do with this blog, but I'm sure I'll figure it out one day, lol!

I edit using Picnik
-Increased saturation
-Exposure -7
-Contrast +8
-Cross Process
-Round Corners
