Linking with Ashley, at the last moment, for my Good to Wow edit for last week where the topic was "turn the hose on". I keep thinking I'll do this edit earlier....and then work gets in the way, not to mention procrastination, other linkys, and life in general. Maybe next week.
My nephew Quinn is all go, all the time. I don't know how he compares with other kiddos his age, but he doesn't watch much TV, which I believe has helped foster an incredible imagination. I'm not sure if he was putting out fires, watering the garden, spray painting, soaking down pirates, or doing something else my boring old Aunt Susan mind can't even fathom.
I was really hoping that when I put these two images side to side, that there would be a difference. I'm pretty new to editing and frankly, at times it feels overwhelming. I've been doing "Good to Wow" for a few weeks now, mostly going back to older lessons to learn what I missed from week 1 thru to week 27.
Before "G to W" I didn't really use curves, so I've been trying to add that to my editing menu on a regular basis. I also learned recently about the median filter under noise....so I used that to soften everything but him, and used high pass sharp on only him. I did a little re-touch of any skin with warmer color and a blur, and then a solid color pinkish/magenta to subdue all that green.
Then I pushed flatten and said "hope for the best". I do think this is more pleasing and the color is definitely improved.
Thanks to Jill and Ashley. Appreciating the opportunity, even though it seems to take me forever.
