i heart faces friday fix it 8.7.09

Here's my Friday fix it for I Faces :)

stop by and check it out :)

such a sweet looking little boy :)

My first choice was to make it bright and airy... Almost has a yellow wash to it.

My steps:
*Fixed Levels: Image>Adjustments>Levels - moved sliders in on left and right
*Boosted Contrast and Brightness: Image>Adjustments>Brightness/Contrast - adjusted sliders to taste
*Added a Photo Filter: Image>Adjustments>Photo Filter>Yellow
*Brought his eyes out with some color overlays: painted in a lighter color than his eye color and changed the blending mode to "overlay". Then I took his eye "ring" color and traced over it and changed the blending mode to "soft light"

Took colored version and did the following steps:

* Sepia Tone: Image>Adjustments>Black&White>added a Tint in the Orange/Yellow family and brought the saturation down
* Added vignette: Filter>Distort>Lens Correction> moved sliders on Lens vignette

Took Sepia version and did the following steps:

* Adjustments>Desaturate (took all color out)
* boosted contrast a little more: Image>Adjustments>Brightness/Contrast - moved sliders to taste

Hope you enjoyed... :)
