Hi,

I took this photo of my daughter the other day. I haven't done any editing and wondered how you would edit it...

Thanks for any input.

I suggest you use ImageShack to post the original image and then link it back to here, so the resulting image is a better quality

I like the close cropped one, and it's possibly what I'd have done.

I've done as rey suggested, here's the link.



Boily - what did you do to adjust the colors? What program did you use? I have photoshop and can never seem to get the colors to look as true as you did, maybe it's the frame you added. It looks great.

vonsanchez - I love the way you cropped the image.

Thanks and any other input is greatly appreciated.

Vonsanchez edited the picture this way simply because it should be this way.

The young lady is the center of interest here, nothing else.

That said, there needs to be a tiny bit more frame space on the left side of her head. Just a tiny bit more.However, this may presenta problem because herright elbow, as she faces the camera,may be cut off at the joint which is a no-no.

I don't agree with the cropping suggestions. You might tighten it some, but it is a picture of a little girl in her wagon at a lake – not a portrait.

Some highlights are blown and there isn't anything you can do to get them back. Referring to the histogram and reducing the EV a little would have made a nicer photo. I defogged it, did some selective color and sharpened it a little.

Unsharp mask. High radius and low amount. I use amount 16 and radius something over 100. It increases your contrast so it doesn't work on some very contrasty photos. And it isn't considered a sharpening step. You still have to sharpen the image.
