CCF - "DD chats"

I thought I'd take a trip down memory lane! This is my soon-to-be 5yr old son (DD), when he was Oh so small! He was cutie! I took this on my old Olympus P&S ~ my very first digital camera . The edits are done this morning ~ very quickly so as to not miss the 50 boat! All CCF welcome!!


Camera:Olympus C220Z
Exposure:0.025 sec (1/40)
Focal Length:6.1 mm
ISO Speed:80

Initial Gimp edit
(levels, sharpen, remove red-eye, light beige hue layer)


PSE7 edit
(crop, unsharp on eyes, two rose hue layers (one as Soft light, one at screen), )


PSE7 edit 2
(used coffeeshot splendor BW action and tweaked to taste)


Lightroom edit ~ using gimp edit as a base
(cropped, rotated, applied aged photo, punched and sharpened for portrait (adjusted slightly))


So what do you think ~ what would you do? If I had time I would definitely work with the background more and try to maybe loose the doll. I think the flowers are distracting too ~ I never thought about these things at the time, I just snapped away!! But I am glad I didn't miss this gorgeous shot and that I even have it to work with :)

More CCF to be found over HERE ~ make sure you pay a visit. There is so much to learn :)

PS ~ If anyone wants to play with this photo just click on the original and enlarge, then right click and save the picture to your computer ~ that is the original size!
If you want to start from an edit, you will have to make do with a slightly smaller version (though still pretty big). Same method as above!

Thank you so much for your feedback on my photo!! So kind of you to take the time to work on my photo- it's awesome! I love how it's rotated a little. I haven't played with the curves on picnik- but now I'm tempted! I get intimidated with all those tools, but I've got to try it out now.
I wish there was some feedback I could give you on your photo, but I am such a newbie! Sweet baby though!
Thanks again-

I love the last edit the best. :)

You little one is a cutie! I love the Lightroom Edit!

Thanks for the advice on my blog! I never thought of using a texture on that picture. Great idea!

Oh sorry! Haha! When you said "I might do something with the background", I was thinking of using a texture to do something different with the background. Sorry for the confusion. :-)
