Default My first post here...

Looking at the work by everyone here is fun (and a bit intimidating, too). I took the before and after of my granddaughter a couple weeks ago with my 40D and 50 1.4. I liked the image pretty much unchanged, but played with saturation, softening, etc., to come up with the second version. Comments and your versions welcomed.

Cute girl. I like your first version better. I'm surprised nobody took you up on this. I will try to give it a whirl later.

What the heck, I figured I would give it a quick shot.

Increased midtones, saturation by about 16, slight adjust to contrast and highlights, Dodged hair highlights slightly. That's about it. Forgot, just a little sharpening.

Another try. Curves adjustment in each channel. Sharpen eyes and collar a tiny bit. Dodged eyes a bit.

Second is just a channel mixer conversion of the first at 30, 50, 40.

Here's my try
-Warming photo filter
-Levels
-Hue/Saturation to bring the colors in her sweater
-Brightness/contrast on a mask to bring out the colors in her eyes
-Layer with a setting of soft light to burn down the fence in the background and I lowered the opacity of the layer
-Dynamic skin softener filter with Nik Software
-Another brightness/saturation to brighten the overall image
-Then the border
