I was going through some of my old shots & came across these. I processed these when I was just starting to learn PS (about a year ago LOL!). Anywho, they did not look very good, so I decided to do a little PP practice on them.

I really like the 1st two, the 3rd is a cute little girl, but the the color looks a bit off and the white background looks cloudy or something. Dont really know how to explain it. I really like the 2nd one the most.

I LOVE them! The blue fence really makes the boy POP!
Would you care to share your PP?

Thanks everyone! Christyjo, I see what you mean about the white background on 3. That was a white column she was leaning against & on the other side of her is a majorly blown out sky....probably could have evened it all out more.

Thanks, that is actually a door (that has since been torn down :( ) Anywho, it was a greyish blue so I used the sponge tool to up the saturation a ton! As for the rest of the PP, just some sharpening, contrast boost, curves adjustment (they were all a bit dark) & evening out of the skin (clone tool). I also sharpened up the eyes a bit more & dodged just the highlights in them to really bring them out. Hope that helps! Oh, almost forgot, I ran a soft focus action on 2&3....kind of gave them a bit of a glowy look.

These look great! I love the colors in the first two...never can get mine to be as vivid as I see other people's...

Thank you! For the second shot I only used one light. A JTL everlight w/a large softbox. Now that I think of it, I might have used my 430EX as well.....it was a while ago & I can't really remember! I don't recall the settings on that & I have no idea how to view the efix data...sorry!

Wow, that was no help at all!
