Messy



"Do I LOOK bovered!!"

This was taken of my daughter a couple of years ago after she had had some fun with spaghetti bolognese! This little mess led to the invention of the verb "to deorangify" in our household!

PLEASE PLEASE take a look at the SOOC shot (it's HERE) just so you can see what I started with :D

How did I do with my editing then? I only have free-editing software (paint.net, GIMP and photoscope) and I am trying to learn more about how to use each of them. So far I think I like paint.net. I'm quite pleased with the overall results of this edit - especially the improvement in the brightness of her eyes and the loss of my son in the background, but what else do you pro's recommend ;) There are things I would still like to do (like crop out the extra sparkles on the top of her head, take out the odd bit of white below her right ear and I've spotted a residual bit of blue cup lurking there too!), but my husband needs the computer with the software on now, so my time is up! :( Other than that...does she need something extra around her left eye? Is there too much red? Is there enough contrast and depth? Are the colours/lighting too dark?
