This is my basic touchup to all pics coming off my camera. Is it too much? Working off a laptop now so need feedback. basically just a saturation bump sandwhiched between two USMs

I really think the colors pop and the image looks great. I'm sure someone who does more portrait work than me will chime in. Nice shot though, I love the expression.

Too much for me. The original's fine. Nice natural light. One USM would have been enough.

I think I personally would keep your son's natural colors and maybe saturate only some of the items to pop out a bit!

Cute little guy by the way, very adorable. They grow up so fast i tell ya! :)

Ok, I think I may have been able to calibrate my my laptop here is another try. My origional edit is oversaturated. How about this? Half as much Saturation bump and a more monitor appropriate sharpness. I oversharpen a bit for printing.

Think I will print both for the final assesment. Always like printed proofs better because the result are not dependant on computer or monitor setup. Now, if Wal-mart will get finished with their "Pre-scheduled Mainenance" and open their 1hr photo back up.

I like the first one and the third one.
The second one was popping out too much, and the baby's color didn't seem accurate.
I like the third one though, cause the colors still pop out, but not alot, to
where it has that fake feel. Have you tried making the eyes pop out a little more?
Kinda like the way I did it beloew...
