fix it friday #45 ~ i heart faces

having some more fun editing other people's photos for fix it friday on i heart faces!

here is the original photo submitted by caroline at frogmum:

here is my edit: in this version i wanted to fix the exposure issues, pop the color and keep things clean and bright. i also added a bit of sunshine. i can almost feel the warm rays when i look at the photo!

About This Blog

hi there & welcome to my photoblog! i'm betsy, a full time wife & mommy to two adorable kiddos, living the sweet life on the outskirts of Hershey, PA. i'm your typical mamarazzi who discovered a passion for photography through photographing my babies. i love editing my photos as much as i love taking them (maybe more!). i never met a photoshop tutorial, action, or texture i didn't like ... i guess you could say i'm a bit of a photogeek (but don't call me a photographer)! my pictures are my art, my outlet, and it just makes me feel good to create something beautiful. ... oh, and sometimes i do other stuff, too!
