iHeartFaces (Children) - Week 9

This is my entry for Creative Cropping (Week 9) over at iHeartFaces. This week, we can show the before and after. For this picture, I tried some creative cropping when I took the shot. Then, I cropped it a bit more in PSE 5.0.

I also did some editing. This was another shot taken with my "little" camera. Big Boy is being serviced. I played with exposure and saturation. I like the way it came out....it remind me of an old postcard. Make sure to check out all of the other cute kiddos and their crops over at iHeart Faces.

You took the words right out of my mouth! When I saw the crop and edit with those palm trees, it made me think of those cool old postcards in my parents' photo albums. Beautiful, artistic job!

I absolutely love the post processing on this photo. It gives it a very vintage look and what a great point of view to have taken the photo from!!

Beautiful work! She looks larger than life in that picture like she's coming right at ya. I just can't stop looking at it. I need to learn how to edit like that. I have Microsoft Picture It! Premium 10 and need to find the disc so I can work on some editing.
