.Before & After Blog Hop.

Every Thursday Monica over at Pixel Perfect does a really fun photography blog hop.


Here is my SOOC shot.
I loved the emotion captured in this shot, but it needed a boost with editing. (I am still getting used to my new camera.)

Photobucket

Here is the after. I was going for a moody, portraiture, vintage post card type look. Ha!

Photobucket

(I edited with Adobe Photoshop CS3)

Head over to Monica's to join in the fun!

I want to know some specs on your new fancy camera. My hubby went back to our local Pizza Hut a couple of nights a week, so that we can get a fancy camera (and new golf clubs) hehe.

We finally got our last credit card paid off and I wouldn't let him charge the clubs..... :D Hope you're having a wonderful day!

Ooooo! I love the edited version. Sometimes the color is distracting and this is one of those shots that just looks GREAT in B&W!

I was going to comment on how great your header is and then I saw your entry. Wonderful photo and edit. His eyes are beautiful!! Your daughters hair brought back memories. I wore my hair in a french braid nearly everyday when I was growing up. It was the only way I could keep the tangles out. : )

Love, love, love this edit!!! A perfect B&W. You did a great job touching up skin, enhancing eyes, and converting to a soft B&W. Love it!!
