fix it friday #58 ~ i heart faces

i wish i heart faces had make it better mondays instead of fix it fridays! fridays are too busy! nevertheless, here's my #58

here is the original photo by susan keller of short on words

here is my edit
fix it friday #58 ~ i heart faces

what i did (edited in photoshop cs3):

opened in camera raw ~ crop, white balance (off her teeth!), increase saturation to +15

opened in photoshop

brightened faces, deepened background ~ touch of light/touch of darkness action ~ mcp actions

sharpened features ~ smart sharpen

daily multivitamin action and kiyoko punch action ~ kubota actions

for the sky, added a "texture" called twilight ~ patti brown kaleidoscope textures

enhanced the sunflare with two "textures", bokeh bunch glow and sweet light ~ patti brown kaleidoscope textures

the last step i did was run noiseware, but this was an oopsie. i meant to do it first, but forgot, and just noticed as i was finishing up that it needed some polishing.

Best I've seen! I love the way you've made the colors pop. Hope you have time to describe your process of editing.

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!
