Default CS5+ACR topic Vignetting

Adobe's Camera Raw supplied with Photoshop and some of the later PS Elements packages is just such a versatile program. It continues to surprise me in its' capabilities.

as an example, I took this shot of my grandaughter a couple of years ago. I've always loved it because Gracie has such an unusual expression for her. She is almost always bright and cherry with a wide smile across her face. This photo shows her serious and pensive. Anyways, I've always loved this photo of her-but not the background. I've tried various approaches to make it more attractive to me.

I only became aware that the vignetting tool existed in CS5 and ACR, when Greg posted a beautiful photo of a flower he had adjusted with the vignetting tools found in ACR.

Here is the original post processed image. Then the next 2 that follow have been processed usng the vignetting slider tools. After vignetting, i removed the color to see what that would look like.

I like the original and the lower pic Zig, truly a well captured expression on that little angel.

Thanks for taking the time to comment. much appreciated.

While I like #1 very much I agree with Craig also for #3 and would very definitely frame #3 at nothing less than 11x14, it is just PERFECT to me.

It`s a beautiful portrait of a beautiful child... I love all 3 but Zig, I think the color balance is off in the second one -- too orange in my opinion ... I like the color of the original
