Fix it Friday

As you are all aware I Love taking pictures and I Love Fix it Friday at I heart Faces!  This weeks photo was another great shot. There wasn't alot of work to be done other than just playing around with different options. I really am a sucker for eyes and love fixing them up. Here is the original photo.

The Original

Edit 1

I boosted up the contrast. I did unsharpen the eyes and burned the edges a little. Then I used the vibrant setting on CS4. That was all I did.

Edit 2

You all know how I feel about an amazing black and white. I changed the photo to B&W then bumped up the exposure.

Edit 3

This one was just for fun. I added back in a little color on her eyes and cheeks. She has amazing eyes and it shows here. I had to turn the opacity way down when I added back the color.

Edit 4

This one I just cropped and used the guasian blur on 11. Then erased her eyes to make the the focal point. It's my favorite!

I'd love to hear your thoughts.
