    This is my first attempt at editing. I got Adobe CS4 today so I was playing with it. This is a photo I took of my son and husband in the park and I just played around with curves and used the vibrance tool a little. I hate the tree in the background but otherwise I love the pose of them. I just happened to catch them off guard. So how did I do for the first time? Oh yeah I removed some blemishes too.

    First time PP that's pretty darn good. Vibrance is actually one of the best tools to bring out the whole color of a shot without affecting the skin tones as bad as the others like saturation - unless offcourse selective colour management is done by masking specific areas (yikes). Skin tones look pretty good and close to the SOOC except a little excess of orange but that's almost unavoidable if editing shots as a whole.

    overall pretty decent, but i would edit the power line out of the pic. A little distracting
