Edit Me - 7.15.11

My Reflection of Something
Disclaimer: This is not my photo. I did not take it.
Copyright belongs to the original photographer.


SOOC:


Edited:


My steps:
-crop
-levels
-warmer
-high pass filter
-MCP mini fusion bc I love all the tweakability
-manual eye sharpening and skin smoothing
-Little Bee, tweaked
-Cosmic Bang texture on overlay at 60%, brushed off him
-edge burn

My afterthoughts: I wish I had increased the warmth AFTER I did the skin smoothing. His face is kinda pale. Also, I don't like the harshness of the vignette, I wish it was softer. But I love the whimsical feel.

Honestly, though, I had so much fun editing this photo! I swear, Mandy must never tire of looking at photos of this sweet boy. She is one lucky mama!
