Fix-It-Friday No.26 - Beauty


This weeks original (beautiful) image!!


___________________________________

For photos that are this good right from the start I just play in Picnik as there is no major adjusting that needs doing - it's just having fun :D
So...

Edit one.

Exposure +15, Contrast +15, Local Contrast 20, Shadows +11,
Colours - neutral to colour mortar in bricks, Temp +11, Sat -12
Rotate -2.30
Crop 5x7 and off-centre.

____________________________________

Edit Two

from edit one then added Vignette, but chose purple shade, faded it and made it weak.
Added frame to match hair and dress.
______________________________

Edit Three

back to edit one (remove vignette & frame)
Added sepia (light brown shade) and faded to 60%
UnSharp - radius 2.7, strength 86%
(I liked it sharpened ;D)
Boost 11% and remove from bricks
____________________________

Edit Four.

removed the boost
worked with 'shine be gone' on her face.
___________________________

Edit Five.

Wanted to try something different!
Worked with edit four and took into curves. I made a deep U curve and removed from the bricks. I liked how it picked her off the wall, but she looked a little orange, so...
_____________________________

Edit Six

... increased exposure +15
& added 'faded daguerreotype' (in curves) faded to 50%
framed to match.
Added a quote.
This is my favourite I think :D

I'm posting this a day late! But I'm still going to
check out everyone elses artistry with this amazing photo over at I ♥ Faces.
