I totally fell in love with this little girl this morning! She is simply DIVINE!

Here is the original:

And here are my fixes:

Just pretty basic fix; layer, soft light (reduced), any blemishes, and levels. Vertical crop

#2, did more in depth editing, smoothing of her face reduced to 40%, eye pop (I don’t remember if I did it in the first one or not, if I did, I reduced it to 35-40% too)

# 3, did a Pioneer Woman action from her free action sets (COLORIZED). Not my favorite, just wanted to try it.

#4, Went vintage on this one just for fun. Then adjusted levels.

#5, This one I went back to the original, and used a Seventies action on it, just because it’s one of my favorites. Cropped in closer to her face. I really like this one! And I LOVE the closer crop! But then again, I’m all about that FACE and those EYES!

#6 Black and white using gradient map, adjusted in levels and curves. And kept the same close crop.

Thank you Angie and Amy for letting us do this! I think we build our editing skills when we do this. 😉 And I’m all about learning and getting better. Now to learn how Teresa did hers…I always love how she adds the borders and textures and I’m ignorant in those.

Anyway! Thanks to the Owner of this gorgeous little girl for letting us “play” with her!
