Edit Me Week 22

I think this is such a fun challenge each week....editing another's photo and admiring all the other beautiful edits.  There is now a new site for this weekly challenge and today is it's premier. 

This week's challenge is presented by Kristi from Live and Love Outloud.  She has presented us with a lovely photo of her daughter.  She is darling and a beautiful subject. 

Here is the original -


And here is my edit......


All my editing is done in PSE 9.  I chose to crop her face in tightly to show off her beautiful eyes and mouth.  I lightened in PSE and used photo actions by Paint the Moon.  I first softened her skin and removed some of the blemishes using "baby-soft skin", ran "banish the blues" to remove any bluish tint, highlighted her brown eyes and whitened the whites in her eyes just a tad.  Added a vignette to darken the bricks in order to make her face distinct from the bricks.   There you have it....my edit me challenge.  Appreciate any feedback offered. 

Our tiny BIG Life

Until next time........
