    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    Hi Gang!

    Well i did my first paying photo job on the weekend (got a carton of coke for it :) ) and though i wasn't totally happy with it all, i did manage to get some good shots and the clients were happy.
    Conditions weren't what i wanted (11am, bright, sunny, on the beach, no shadey areas) but i intend on reshooting under my terms in a few weeks time.

    Anyway, after the shoot they asked for some candid shots of the boys playing around and that they wanted some sort of effect so they would stand out.....This is a couple of the altered shots i did on one pic.

    It wasn't originally black and white no?

    The top image: try this: mask off the boy again (and the rock next to him, I think) and reverse the mask... make the background MORE blurry using a blur or gausian blur filter. This should give you a better depth of field effect.

    The lower picture: spectacular! That's truly impressive.

    I love the second photo. I'm really not sure how to do that.
