Took this of my little girl while we were sitting in the kitchen... Went for a "Vintage effect." What do you think?

Thanks

Looks cool but I think the colors are too washed out ? ?

I think vintage works when you don't loose sharpness; or you add a sharpening mask on your color/curve layers.

I like the first one because of the "dreamy" effect.

Looks good. Works really well with this image and softens the skin tones nicely. I wouldn't sharpen any further. Looks sharp to me and if you're going for vintage, over sharpening isn't going to add to that effect. Would you mind sharing what you did to achieve this?

You bet... I dialed in my exposure, contrast, sharpness, etc in LR4... Then I ran DFINE 2 through the NIK collection, then I used Analog EFEX Pro in the NIK collection to find the determined Vintage look and messed around until I found the look I was looking for.

Or, just for the fun of it, I layered the mono on top of the vintage and set the blend mode to Luminocity. Here is the result.

(BTW - I like the vintage.)
