Fix it Friday at I Heart Faces...


Every Friday at I Heart Faces they do something called "Fix It Friday".  They offer an image taken by someone else, and give you the chance to "fix" or edit it how you please.  It is a great way to practice editing images.  Being a self taught Photoshopper, this is a really great thing for me to try.  I know that Angie and Amy said to leave nice comments, but please feel free to offer constructive criticism here!  I need it!  So, here is the original image...


And here are my attempts to "fix" it...though it was a very cute SOOC shot...


I forgot to write down the "recipe" that I used, but my editing program is Photoshop CS4.  I know that I ran a quick defog, then used a few actions from MCP Actions, including Color Burst, Touch of Light/Darkness, and on the top photo I used Take Action on Cancer Awareness. 

I have really enjoyed my first week at I Heart Faces!  Thanks for all the great comments!

Much Love, Jessica
