FIX-IT-FRIDAY - #84 ~ Chubby Cheeks!

My take; 
needs a little sharpening, need to lose some of the shadows on her face, lose the light on the right and bright light on the top left above her, face in a cross-section (I use golden rule instead of thirds), needs general lightening and brightening, eyes pop & I want it too look sunny!

 LR3 Edit #1 (from JPG)

I think I achieved my goals :D
I decided not to do a BW this week because I didn't want to loose all that sunshine and pink-girlishness ;D

This evening I had a go with the RAW file (still entirely in LR3)

RAW edit #1

RAW edit #2

If I am entirely honest, aside from having a slightly better quality original and a few extra options with the RAW I cannot really tell much difference when editing it. If anything I think I slightly prefer my JPG edit (the Bumbo definitely has better colour in the jpg).

What do you think?

(PS ~ sorry about the watermark on the RAW edits, I forgot to turn it off when uploading to Flickr. This is of course NOT my original picture & I do NOT own the copyright on it!)

beautiful edit. I like the light coloring for a pretty little girl!

I couldn't find a B&W one I liked either. The pink was too cute!

PS I started a new meme called SOOC Saturday where you link up your Straight Out Of the Camera… no editing shots! If you’d like to post an edit after your SOOC shot, that’s fine too. I’d love for you to join us!

What a gorgeous edit! I love all the pink tones you added. It gives a really girly feel.

I love all your edits but I think I like the first edit the most ;)
