I heart Faces- Fix it Friday



So a friend of mine showed me this site and I have been checking it out for some neat ideas on editing, so this week I thought I would give it a go and do their "Fix-it Friday"






This is the original photo:



And here is my version:
So here is what I did for this photo.
1. I adjusted the exposure and contrast.
2. I softened the area around the boy to bring attention to his face.
3. I used a black and white program with a vignette and removed some of the fade so it had a little more color.
4. Lastly I went back to my coloring and fixed a little more the temperature making it a -5.
Hope you enjoy and you can check out all the fabulous fixes at I heart faces link above!

I'm wishing I had added vignetting to mine. It just really seems to bring the focus on this adorable boy.
