Fix-It Friday #50- Urban Girl!

A while back this picture was submitted for Constructive Critcism Friday and I worked on it then. I have been out all day today with my family, but thought I'd show what I did then. I worked on it in Picnik (Premium) as I knew this was the Debbie (the original photographer) was using for editing and I wanted to be able to give her some tips :D

Here's a copy of the comments I left Debbie that day;

I'll try to remember what I did;
  • Upped the exposure and fiddled with the contrast. I know I used the local contrast at about 10 and upped the ordinary contrast to 10 also. 
  • I tweeked the shadows and highlights too.
  • In 'touch up' I lightly used the teeth whitener on the whites of her eyes! The made them much less blue. Then I dodged her whole of her eyes lightly.
  • In 'advanced' I used the faded daguerreotype curve and faded it out to leave a nice skin tone.
  • I applied a light orange tint effect and faded that too (brought her skin up even better)!
  • I reapplied the dag' curve and faded it out again.
  • I blemish fixed her skin (always make sure to do this in phases as the undo doesn't work on this tool). And then I airbrushed all over her skin on her face and neck, fading in out about 60% to give a nice natural look.
  • Lastly, I framed for effect :D

Love your edit and I am so happy to finally see someone else paying attention to the yellow neck that the brightening of this photo produces.

Great edit.

I love what you did! The first edit I had was also something that I'd tried when I'd first seen it during Constructive Feedback Friday... :)

Oh why can't you be my neigbour?

I would love to have you as my mentor for photography......
I would supply you with copious amounts of tea, coffee baked goods, scrub your floors, wash your windows, regrout your tiles in your bathroom.

Once again you have blown me away, even if it isn't your image you put the life in it.
