# 7

For this image, my first step was getting rid of my reflection in the ornament.  I accomplished this by using the lasso tool to surround the reflection and then using the content aware fill.  Next, I wanted the focus to be on the ornament, so I added a gradient and turned down its opacity to darken the right side of the image.  Finally, I used a multiply blend mode to even out the gradient and then erased the adjustment layer over the ornament so that the red shone through.
