I ♥ Faces Fix-It Friday "Cutie-Pie"

What an adorable photo to play with!! Check out all of the other plays here.

Here's the original:



My two edits using CS3:

Here, I brightened using curves, popped the color, used Vanessa's eye pop (see my last post), and sharpened.


PW's "Heartland", plus I darkened up the blacks.

Beautiful job! I love what you did with the eyes...I'll have to go back and read your previous post on this one.

The last one has such a nice vintage feel to it. Nicely done.
