Fix-It-Friday No.32 - Ballet baby!



Original.

This weeks baby was seriously over-shadowed and a tough call fro editing! I hope you see something good in what I've come up with. I couldn't decide what I wanted from this shot though, I just though it needed to be subtle.

I started off in Gimp to bring up the shadows with layers and then I took the edit into Picnik for effects :D

Edit One (Gimp)

________________________

Edit Two - same as above with canvas effect added (gimp)

___________________________

Edit Three (gimp + vintage effect)

___________________________

Edit Four (Picnik)

______________________________

Edit Five (duo tone blue yellow)

_______________________

Edit Six ( Softened + faded daguerreotype + sepia)

_____________________

Edit Seven (Same as above less the sepia tones)

_____________________

Edit Eight (faded b&w + curves)

It's funny what you don't see though... my son just walked in the room and said - "that's weird, she has one eye darker than the other!" Now, I have been staring at this photo for hours and didn't notice that eye had got darker and darker. Looking back I can see I brought it up in my original edit and it has gradually sunk back down. Hey-ho - what's done is done! I could go back and lasso it and bring it up again, but I need to move on..!

Maybe this might have been a great shot to try out that fairly fantasy tutorial with gimp, but I only just thought of that!!

Now go and take a look at what other wonderful things people have done with this shot over at I ♥ Faces
