Edit Me

Edit Me is one of my favorite challenges, but I have been terrible about following through and posting edits.  I have a bad habit of forgetting to write down steps and then it just sits on my desktop.  Oh well!  I still get the practice of editing, which is what I really need.  Here's a familar face!  This is Stephanie's (from Behind the Camera and Dreaming) adorable little boy, Jonah!  I love those little water droplets on his sweet lil' face.

 I started out in lightroom and used the cloning tool to get rid of the arm of the person behind Jonah.  I used a preset called Mod by M4h, but then started tinkering with tones, hues and saturations so it looked pretty different by the time I was done.  I adjusted brightness and actually decreased the contrast a bit. I also used the brush tool to lighten up his eyes just a touch.  I brought into photoshop and ran a peach haze and played a little with the cyan color of the photo.  A little too much cyan, perhaps. :0 Then, I brought into picmonkey to add a watermark and to finish up the cloning that I couldn't quite get in lightroom.  I think that's it!
