Fix-it Friday!

It's Fix-it Friday again! I debated about whether or not I would participate this week. With We Art posts Wednesday and Thursday, I thought I should probably have a real post. But in the end, the photo this week was just too beautiful for me to miss out on the fun!

Original:
I really love the back lighting, but I think it made her face look a little too washed out.

Fix #1:Fix #2:My fixes are exactly the same except for the different crops. I accidentally closed Paint Shop Pro before I typed them out, so this is what I did to the best of my memory:

- Gamma correction
- Manual color correction for the black of her eyelashes
- Adjustment of midtones and contrast
- Slight sharpening

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Always love your fix-it fridays. My favorite this week is your second crop. I love seeing hands (and feet for that matter) in portraits. All of our family portraits are always full-body for that very reason. Nice work on the color effects too.
