This weeks Fix-it was beautiful and really didn't require much I felt. I started out by fixing the exposure (local contrast 50, brightness +7, Shadows +7, exposure +10, Contrast +10), then unsharpmask at about radius 6, strength 6. This was a lot of unsharp but for once I wasn't worried about adding 'grit' to the photo, as I actually felt that would add to it :D I was aiming for an 'old' look! I then rotated to make her skirt 'swish' to the left and cropped to a 5x7 to put her into the rule of thirds :D

Then I just played with the 'effects' and these are combinations of sepia, faded b&w, faded lomo, vignette in them all, cinemascope (edit one) and maybe a twiddle here and there with others, I can't remember!!

I'm pleased. I think I acheived my aim. I can't decided which is my favourite...maybe I'll leave that to you :D

And when you've left your comment don't forget to go and check out all the other editions of this weeks fix-it over at I ♥ Faces.

Caroline, I love your crops of all three, I think I like the coloring of the second one, but they're all much better than what I've done. LOL! I am just learning how to use photoshop software programs, and I'm 1/2 way through the book on CS3, so I'm learning - I'll get there, I promise! LOL! Thanks so much for your inspirational edits.
