Before 'N After. 3.

Just a little before and after of one of my recent seniors:

The "before" picture is pretty good, I think ... but I was in a warm sort of mood the day I edited these photos and played around quite a bit to get my finished version, which I really love. I straightened the image a little, cropped it in tighter, then cloned out the cord that had been right behind the post. Then I ran a couple of Florabella actions (Musette from the Luxe set and Splendor from the Spring II set). This lightened the picture up considerably, so I brought the background back with a TRA action (Big Blue) that I use for all my burning and to add saturation. I'm really happy with the final product, but I certainly know that all photoshoppin' is subjective. So I would LOVE to hear what some of YOU think. Leave me a comment and let me know!

I really like the warm glow on the 'after' and the added color to the background. She will love it!

I actually really the original picture. I guess that's why I don't use many actions or effects on my pictures. The second one is of course pretty too. :)

I like them both really. The second one made me feel like I stepped into a movie though :) Fun feeling...

I enjoyed the session Heidi, Thank you, the warm tones and color added to the after pic are great. I love it:)

The biggest difference to me is how much the subject pops in the second picture! In the original picture the tones all blend together (if that makes sense) in the after shot she just shines! Gorgeous picture, gorgeous subject. I love before & afters :-D
