Shoot and Edit–Week 4 Edit

So, I had a lot of fun editing this picture!  Smile

Ashley commented that I could crop out Michael in the background… and I thought that could work really well… so I did it.  Winking smile

Here’s the before, just to remind you:

And here’s the after:

I opened in Camera Raw, and adjusted it.

I cloned out Michael in the background.

I can’t remember all that I did (headsmack) but I know that I did use CoffeeShop’s Perfect Portrait.

I love how much it warmed Hannah up!  Open-mouthed smile  She looks like a real girl, now.  Winking smile

Here they are side by side:

I’m so thankful that Ashley and Jill came up with this idea… gotta love learning and trying new things!  Smile

 

I’m going to link up with You Capture, too… cause this week’s theme happens to be RED.  Smile
