Disclaimer: This is not my photo. I did not take it.

I was so overjoyed to see the photo for this week. I spend much of my free time hanging out with my younger brother and his friends, some of whom have DS. I believe that all children with disabilities are innocent angels, blessings sent from God to teach their families how to be better parents/sisters/brothers. So I knew, as soon as I saw this photo, exactly how I wanted to edit it.
-ACR: desaturate and adjust contrast + exposure to my liking
-PSE8: resize canvas, stretch left side, crop
-Gaussian blur layer to soften skin and background
-CoffeeShop Perfect Portrait 3
-CoffeeShop Sweet Bakery Glazes - Vanilla Glaze @ 48%
-text, watermark, done!
My thoughts: Honestly, I am uber-happy with my edit. I completely and totally love how it looks. Period. End of story.
Do you agree??
