I have got the colour bug and went out to get some on the sensor;)
PP done but not too much saturation this time round I hope.

Love the shots! Great job. IMO, the blue eyes i the first pic may be slightly overdone. Are they that blue?

I upped the vibrance in raw to around 40 which made the whole image a bit more colourful which in turn brings out the eyes more.I then sharpened the eyes which brings them out more.:)
This is a before and after.

very nice pictures... I am not 100% sure if I like the eyes.. I love a good eye pop but I think it is just a tad overdone and look like glass balls.. But this could just be me.. Your baby has the most amazing blue eyes though.. Where did you get the blanket?? I LOVE the colors... :) Nice work all in all..

These are two very cute pics. I myself like how the eyes came out. But that's just me.

Thanks Heather i just got these photos printed and I find the eyes 'dull' down nicely;)
My wife got the blanket from a 'cheap shop'(Crazy Clarks) here in Oz for $3.:p

I use USM when I select the eyes and a little saturation/vibrance for the whole photo.It helps she has got the right eyes for it:)

Nice, the first one really pops nicely.
#2 I wish I had seen more of the eyes.

Beautiful shots of gorgeous kids! Did you try to up the levels a little to brighten them up a bit? Love the colors!

I like them both even the eyes...I think they need just a teeny bump in curves to brighten them up...

Very cute photos! The color has gone awry a bit.. I see some green patches on the skin. Hmm.. Two questions: Were the photos originally underexposed? Did you shoot in Jpeg or Raw?
