fix it friday, vol. 4

It's a fun one this week. Great picture to start with. Just made a few adjustments to make it really pop.



What I did:
  • levels
  • brightness/contrast
  • bumped up saturation slightly on entire image, then deselected face and increased more
  • warmed up slightly in color balance
  • increased highlights on teeth to whiten
  • dodged forehead and eye area to lessen shadows
  • eyes: dodged all, burned pupils, edges and eyelashes. dodged under eyes. bumped up saturation and sharpened.
  • clone stamp to erase snowflake on jacket
  • unsharp mask
  • cropped
More editing than I would normally do, but I get a little carried away on fix it friday!

Have a great weekend...Hope the storms stay away from your neck of the woods, as Al would say.
