Before & After

I just saw on Shirley's photo blog that 2Peas is doing a photo challenge each week. This week is Before & After...essentially this means a photo before and after a little post shot tweaking.


SOOC
f/7.1
1/320
ISO_400
50mm
AWB
No Flash








After PSE
I lightened to overall image just a touch. Then, I sharpened the eyes (unsharp mask) using the lasso. Dodged the eyes a little. Created a duplicate layer, applied an overlay and adjusted the transparency. Done! Really made the color pop.

Great job making the colors pop!
I need to play around more with PSE - that's on my list of things to do.

I'm embarrased to say how I found you, but I'm glad that I did. I am so proud that you took your passion and turned it into something great! The blog is great and "A" got so big! Thanks for listing me and for being a fan! I'd love to catch up soon.
