Edit Me - 8.5.11

My edit:


My steps in ACR:
-increase exposure, temperature, contrast, & clarity
-decrease brightness
-increase fill light

My steps in pse8:
-crop
-add blue sky in the corner
-use Hue/Saturation to change the blue toning
-add an aqua solid color fill and brush off all skin
-Lemon Drop retro action, tweaked
-add more contrast
-add sharpening to baby and daddy
-cool retro overlay from Isabelle Lafrance - one layer darken @ 44% and one layer soft light @ 69%
-add even more contrast
-soft vignette

My thoughts: I added the blue sky originally because I wasn't sure which direction I was going to go. You can't even see the sky that I added because the overlay basically covered it up. But I love the retro feel of it.

Your thoughts?
