I ♥ Faces- Fix-It Friday

Yea! It's Friday... my favorite day of the week AND it's time for Fix-It Friday over at I ♥ Faces.
The original picture below was submitted by Jennifer. You can find her blog HERE. As you know, I LOVE photo editing. I am always trying to learn something new. I couldn't resist this baby boy's adorable face with the tear streaming down his cheek. I can only imagine why he was crying...maybe he'd rather be outside getting into all sorts of mischief. I know my kids would!

Below is the original picture.

Here is my edit:

Photobucket


1. Gave it an aged antique look in Lightroom 2.3, then imported image to Photoshop Elements 7.
2. Cropped picture. Cloned out crumbs on chin and runny nose.
3. Unsharp mask on irises only
4. Burned lashes just a touch
5. Unsharp mask on tear
6. Reduced noise
7. Softened fur just a little bit around his face
That's it!
I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Hi! I love your fix. It was such a good idea to sharpen the tear and to soften the hat. Wish I had thought of that! :)

This really and truly turned out beautiful! It's hard to go wrong with cutie-pie face like that. :)
