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.

Eye Pop a'la Vanessa!

Check this out! There's a blog I read quite often. Daily most of the time! She takes the most awesome pictures, and her color and eyes always look amazing. Today, I noticed she had a little blurb on how she gets those eyes looking their best. So check out what Vanessa's eye pop trick is!
Here's what it did for my beautiful son's eyes! and I must say this pop is fantastic, because in person, O's eyes look much more like the edit!

Before: (sooc)

After: (with a bit of a brightening, also)

I ♥ Faces Fix-It Friday #5

Okay, I was pouting that I missed this on Friday. Seriously, all night Friday, I was pouting. no internet. No way to play on Fix it Friday. But the pic was still there today, and Mr Linky is still there. So I'm gonna be rebelious and do it anyway! HAHA!!! :)

Here's the gorgeous original:

and My edits using Photoshop CS3.

Just brightened up, fixed the shineys on the face, and added a fun texture!

Warm and vintage:
