FIX-IT-FRIDAY - NO.51 - "Snow Smile"


original

_________________________________

Lightroom3 edit (#1) 
  • auto tone
  • punch
  • my own preset called FB Grungey Glow!
  • used iris enhance adjustment brush and set to taste


__________________________________

PSE edit (#2)
  • opened edit 1
  • opened original
  • coverted original to B&W and then placed as a layer on top of edit 1
  • set to soft light and reduced opacity ~ this really enhances the colours :D
  • merged down
  • copied the layer and cloned out the snow on her face using other areas of her face.
  • I thought her eye colour was too much altered, so I selected the colour of her eyes from the original, using the dropper, and then in a duplicate layer of this edit I selected her eyes and used the hue adjustment to bring back in her original colour.
  • I then reduced the opacity of the duplicate layer until I reached a compromise I liked!

Edit #3 
(carrying on from #2) 
  • applied my favourite action ~ coffeeshop Johnna's Tea Party
  • reduced opacity of both layers and changed top layer to 'soft light' for more punch.


________________________________

Edit #4
(from #2)

Applied PW BW beauty with very little adjustment


_____________________________

Edit #5
(from #2)

applied PW sunshine with reduced opacity to taste.


___________________________

Edit #6
(form #2)

Applied PW sepia tones with no adjustment!



I'm pleased with my edits, but one thing I would also have done is to have dodged under her eyes a little (using a duplicate layer back on the initial PSE edit) to reduce the shadows a touch.

Hope you like my edits.
There are lots of other wonderful edits over at Fix-It-Friday ~ take a look!

I think you may have a problem with your images. All I am seeing is white boxes that say "image is currently unavailable."

There they are! They look great. I like the B&W (the one with no color at all). Great work!

Beautiful edits - I'm not sure I can choose just one.
