FIX-IT-FRIDAY - NO.79 - "Princess!"


Here is this week beautiful original.
 (click to go to the download page if you want to have a go at 'fixing' it)


My only thoughts are; it's a little cool, it needs a touch of sharpening (most SOOC shots do) and I want to loose the path because it doesn't add anything to the picture. I also thought a close up of her adorable little face might be lovely...

So using LR3 here are my edits;




I'll just add here that discovery of the ALT key when adjusting the sharpness has been my BEST friend lately! 
Check this tutorial out ~ it's such an AWESOME thing! ;
_________________________________

I liked my basic edit, but thought she'd look lovely BW too...



___________________________________

Same as above, only cropped tight and square.

(it really helps to have a really good quality, high resolution image to begin with when your are cropping THIS much!)

______________________________________

Same as edit 3, but with MP Delicate Vintage V2 applied and then tweaked (see screen shot).
I also applied a colour adjustment brush to her eyes to bring them back to blue.



I'm posting this a little early in the hope that maybe, just maybe, my expected baby might come on time!! 
Due date ~ tomorrow (Friday)!!

Please leave your comments ~ I'll be sure to read them and I might even get chance to visit and see yours!

To join in the fun of Fix-it-Friday, hop on over to iheartfaces tomorrow and link up your edit :D

Beautiful edits...she is a little doll isn't she?!

And congrats on the upcoming birth of your baby. I hope that she (or he) will come right on time! :)

Great edits! You did a wonderful job.

I love the close-up B&W. Gorgeous! Having seen your crop of the full-shot, I also agree that I should have done the same and got rid of that blasted pillar. Thanks for stopping by to comment. Input greatly appreciated!

Oh, p.s. GREAT idea to screen shot the Lightroom history. That would have saved me a TON of time.

You did an amazing job! :)

I like your clean edit a lot, but I think your close crop B&W is pretty much perfect.

Sending some prayers and well wishes your way for your baby to come quickly and safely!
