FIX-IT-FRIDAY - NO.63- "Friendship!"

This weeks Fix-it doesn't really need a lot of fixing! It's a photo of Angie’s daughter and her little friend.


Fix One

This is my basic Lightroom 3 edit for most of my photos (I've made my own preset for it); ~ 
auto tone, warm +3, clarity +26, vibrance +15, noise reduction ~ luminance 13, detail 89, contrast 18, sharpening set to 35/1.4/15/60, and lastly darks +31, shadows +28
Then I just cropped to 5x7 and rotated very slightly 

Edit Two
From Basic edit, I applied Isabelle LaFrance preset ' soulful sunshine 4'
I then adjusted the recovery to + 87, and the exposure to -0.14
Lastly I applied LR own 'edge effect PC vignette 2'


Edit Three
From basic edit I applied 'Ilford Delta 3200 auto' preset (from here)
adjusted to shadows 16, Darks 31 and contrast 45

Edit Four
From basic edit applied Photo Flavors 'Second Kiss'
addjusted to highlights +100, exposure -00.14
applied PC vignette 2

Edit Five

I took edit 4 into PSE7
duplicated the background layer and filled with a light 'muddy' colour ~ changed this to 'hard light' mode @ 25% opacity
created a new layer and bucket filled with a light creamy colour picked from the picture ~ changed to 'colour burn' @ 20% (this had the effect of 'bringing back' the sky and the white dress and adding a soft creaminess to the overall effect).
Duplicated the top layer and used the noise-despeckle filter (set layer to 25%)
Applied CoffeeShop 'web-color-block it' action to create border (colour picked from the image)
Duplicate layer ~ despeckle again @ 27% opacity
Flatten and Save.

I think my favourite edits today are #2 and #5 ~ what about you?

Please leave a comment and/or contrustive criticism :D

Wonderful edits! You make me want to try using my LR2.6 more. LOL I normally only edit in PSE8, but you inspired me.
