Fix-It Friday #44 - Hands-On Photo Editing Fun!

I HEART FACES Fix it Friday Day for me!!!

This was a quick fix for me this week. What I love about this photo is the shadowing on the street... I know what a lame thing to love right! But it is so unique. For me it is telling me that the sun is starting to go down and casting beautiful shadows on things!

So here is what I did to the photo.
1) Sharpened in PS2
2) Cross Processing "L08" with Nik Software using a 46% Opacity
3) Flattened Image
4) Added a warm texture with a built in Sunflare. Don't you think this photo looks great with a sunflare! It just really needed one!
5) Added white dots to her eyes to draw attention to them... they were just lacking them .
6) Cropped image

Done in just a few minutes. Have a great weekend!!!

Great edit! Love the sun flare too.

I will try to do a pregnancy update soon. I took a bunch of pictures of the belly today but it is difficult to do it yourself LOL! After an hour I was completely exhausted and needed a half an hour nap. I want to do a bunch more shots so I think it will probably take another week or two to get them done and edited.
