    I took this shot of my 3 handsome little guys a couple of days ago... they were having so much fun playing in the leaves, and I had my camera ready and yelled "Hey guys!" and they all looked up and I got this shot... I really like it (probably mostly because they're my kids! :mrgreen:), but i'm having trouble with editing that i'm happy with. I'm posting it SOOC, and let you have at it if you want to. I have tried boosting the color, I have tried desaturating a bit, and I've tried a funky mix. But I don't like any of them so far... so what can you come up with? I know it needs a bit of sharpening, but what else would you do with it? Thanks! :hugs:

    I didn't change much, not sure if you will like it any better. Great Pic.

    Slight S curve for contrast, shadow highlight to bring up the dark blue middle guy, high pass sharpening technique.

    Thanks to those of you who have given this a shot... I think I like the last one best. I think the tones and colors look the most natural in it. Moonb007 was a very close second! Thanks again everyone!

    Have to ask about the glasses. Is he wearing them upside down? Looks like it. My youngest ALWAYS wears any kind of glasses upside down no matter how much I try to tell her. Just had to laugh about that because it definitely looks like they are being worn upside down in the photo there.

    He's wearing them right. There is a curve over the nose the way he's wearing them... it's more squared the other way. They really could go either way, but he gets mad if you put them on him upside down. It's kinda funny to watch him though. :lol:
