    I was looking through some of my archives and came across this old image, and reworked it with some current methods. C&C welcome. Thanks so much for looking.

    Thanks for the comment and critique. :)

    Thanks, I appreciate the critique. This was an old photo that I had done with a P&S before I had invested in an SLR. It had that digital haze that appears so often with SOOC photos, so I did a defog with USM at 40, 60, 1 to increase the contrast a bit. Often times, saturation gets bumped up a little bit too in the process. I appreciate the time you took to post a comment.

    Yes it definitely is fun. But I dont think Im going to reprocess pics from my old P&S camera too much anymore. I like to start with fresh unprocessed photos straight from the SLR. What in the world did we do before we had our SLRs? haha. ;)

    Thanks so much for the nice comment! :)

    Actually, the more I look at it, the more I am not liking how overdone the eyes are. Here is a version with no processing done to the eyes at all. Hopefully, that looks better. :)

    In my opinion I like the first better. Very beautiful eyes!

    In the second it seems the flowers are popping more than the beautiful little girl. The first makes both of them pop to me, making the picture a beautiful one.
