If you'd like to learn how to achieve a similar soft & whimsical effect to your own photographs, you can! I have uploaded my very own personal Photoshop Actions for you, which you can find here:

My 4th Photoshop Action Set - these are Retro & Vintage.
I used Photoshop CS2, i'm not entirely sure if they will work for below my version, but have a try anyway!
Included in the Action Set:
Retro Blue: a lovely bright blue/sea blue color, which enhances your colours and creates a sharpened clear look. Will look fabulous on ocean photos, or to achieve the best retro look.
Vignette Enhanced: This action creates a soft but more contrasted effect, highlighting the subject and adding a perfect vignette around your photo.
Grain Vintage: This adds an 'old' look to your photo by adding grain + film grain, with a slight sharpen.
Gentle Blue: This action is almost a soft icey look, not too harsh on the eyes, will look great on any photo. Skin colours will look brighter but much softer.
Softened Vintage: This is almost a romantic look, yet vintage, using yellow hues and mauves.
Most of these actions reduce noise levels to your photo, so they should be clearer.
Remember that I have used a high resolution Stock photograph from Darnara-Stock, which means that the Actions work best on a photo that is quite large.
They may be just color actions to some people, but they are still my own, and I would be very pleased if I were credited in your description. Do not use and claim as your own color effects. I would absolutely love to see what you come up with, so if you credit and tell me, I will come and look to comment/fav.
If you have any difficulties or need help, please note me.
