I ♥ Faces Fix-It Friday #22

It's Friday and I'm off of work with my son here from Oregon (he lives with his father), and I"m super excited. I can't pry him away from his brothers and sister so I'm playing on the computer. What a great time to edit a beautiful picture!!

Before:



After:



I used Photoshop CS3. Ran Totally Rad's Touch of Light/Touch of Darkness. Lightened her face and dress, and darkened the grass behind her. Then I cloned out the pot and window behind her. Added a cool texture,set it at soft light at about 75% opacity. and with a layer mask, I erased her back in.
Sharpened for web, and Viola. :)

You really are a fantastic editor. Wow. I wish you could help me be better. It is a sword in my side!

Do you think you will go to the I heart faces weekend workshop in November? Oh my gosh. It would be so fun to meet some of the people I've met thru I heart faces like you!
