Fix it Friday!

Yay! It’s FIF at I Heart Faces! I love FIF. If you don’t know what it’s all about…head on over there and check it out, and join in the fun while you’re there!

My fix was done in CS5. This was a sweet picture to begin with- just needed a little TLC. I decided to crop in a little tighter to get rid of some of the contrasty shadows/bright spots in the background and to bring her sweet face forward. I put her eye in the upper 1/3 focal point. I adjusted levels and curves. I lightened up her face just a touch and I deepened the colors and contrast in the chair and the background. I also sharpened up the texture on the chair.

If you are reading this…please leave a comment and tell me whatcha think! And please follow my blog while you’re here. I need some friends :)
