Now here was a nice fun shot to work with, this girl though very shy and nervous still managed to deliver some stunners. Here is the original image......and with a little touching up, magazine-like finish.

Hey, just posting some before and after images. Some of the edits I have done in the past that have delivered satisfaction. In this photo I went from basic to extreme, personally, I like the middle one, not too much, not too little.
My niece came and stood by me while I was photographing some scenery, I think it's a cool shot... ...in black and white, with some shadow/highlight adjustments. Her sister, playing on the stairs, so I perched my camera against the wall and got this one... ... so after a lighting, contrast adjustment and a soft blurred layer (with some cleaning up) the result is quite pleasing and one for the books. A year end dance... shot the lovely couple and had fun. Downside, backgrounds were not always pleasing... ...enter clone tool! Some time to get it right without chopping an arm or anything of the sort.
Well, for now, just some retouch images.
