Just a picture of my neice Jordynn who wasnt to thrilled about me taking pictures of her.
I like it... but there's no eyes!
I need eyes.
Right now it's like 3 open holes, it bugs me.
Nicely composed, but it definitely needed some fill flash. Its way too dark.
The child actually looks like NOYZE lol too dark...not enough detail
Create new layer> quick mask over the eye > invert selection> adjust levels of eyes to open them up a bit> CTRL J create duplicate layer (makes layer of eyes only) blending mode Color Dodge> adjust blending mode to taste > Flatten image>Create Adjustment layer> Curves> Anchor the highlights on the curve> Anchor the shadows with a sample from the side of the head>Adjust shadows on the curve to open up shadows a bit>Blur the shadow noise by hand with a soft edged blur brush set to about 30>flatten image and save
Now we're talkin'!

I use Photoshop CS3 but all those adjustments are pretty basic. I have not used Photoshop Elements in sometime but all the tools to do this should be there as well
