I ♥ Faces - FIF #23 - SWEET BOY

Sweet Boy Original


Fix One:

Edit:- Rotate, Exposure +11, Contrast +11, Saturation-30, Temp 79, Unsharp - Radius 1.4, Strength 86%
Create /touch-up :- Eye Colour - green fadded to 90%, Blush (first colour) faded to 32% applied to over highlighted areas of face, Lip Colour (5th on top) H35/S34/T-5%, Mascara 30% (small brush),
Create /effects :- Vignette. Chose v.slight brown and faded out. Frame in turquoise of t-shirt.

(post script: as I didn't know the colour of the little lads eyes, but I detected a hint of green in the grey that's what I went with - hope you like it :D )

Fix Two

Started again from the original.
Edit:- Exp -5, Contrast 13, Unsharp R1.4, Strength 72%, square crop & rotate (less this time)
Create/advanced:- Curves - preset Faded Daguerreo Type faded to 25%
Create/effects:- Vignette 27/26/22

Fix Three

Took it from the point of Rotation this time.

Create/effects:- B&W
Create/advanced:- curves - made and s and faded to 18%
Create/effects:- focal soften (upped the blur and downed the hardness), applied Cross Process faded to 80%, Vignette 51/62/63
Framed with Museum at 15/11 and picked out tone from t-shirt.

Fix Four

Undid as far as applying the Cross Proces, added slight Vignette and framed.


Fix Five

I was aware that for all the others I had gone for desaturation I thought I'd have a go in the opposite direction :D
Back to the point of rotation and simply applied Ortonish at 31/73/43, Matte for the edges and then Reflection Frame with no reflection!

Then I picked my favourite edit and added some text (a quote of Charles Dudley Warner) :D


I really had fun with this beautiful picture. I hope you like my edits :D

Now I'm off to check what everyone else did with it over at I ♥ Faces - why don't you join me :D

Nice job on all of your edits. I love the last one.

Love the last one with the quote. Nice edits!

I was trying to come up with my favorite to share with you, but as I was going through a second time I realized I liked them all. The crop on the first one is unique and stands out to me but the softness of the last edit is wonderful too, and your B&W conversions are awesome too. (See, not favorites)

I love your fifth edit, but they're all great. I'm so new to the editing thing that I am constantly inspired by all of the edits, and find every one of them to be great! :) Fantastic job!

I like edit 5, but I also like the poem on the last edit.
