I Heart Faces Fix-It-Friday!!!!!

It’s time for another I Heart Faces Fix-It Friday!!

Like I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I Heart Faces is a fantastic, interactive photography/editing blog. Every Friday they have something called “Fix-It-Friday” where they post an image for you to edit. They also have contributors who explain how they “fixed-up” the photo so it’s an opportunity to learn new techniques. Other readers also post their links to edits so you get a huge variety of editing solutions.

Check out this week’s challenge and all the other beautiful edits here:

This week’s original:

Really, the original photo was pretty great on it’s own. It just needed a little bit of pop so I worked with the levels and curves to make that happen. Then, the person who submitted the photo mentioned that they wanted her eyes to stand out so I used the dodge/burn tool to brighten the irises and darken the pupil. I did a little bit of skin smoothing and I was done.

Since the world always needs a little bit of style:
