i heart faces – Fix-it Friday with a “Beau”tiful little boy

Last week, I published this photo for i heart faces’ special Friday critique. I loved the photo but something about it just felt off to me.

The original:DSC_0051My edit (which I realize now is overdone in the face): DSC_0051 copy 3 ps This week everyone who participates in the i heart faces Fix-It Friday is taking a stab at editing this photo. It has been so exciting to see how everyone has “fixed” it and yet oh-so-humbling to see how much more I have to learn : )

To see how all of these talented photographers have taken a stab at my photo of Beau, head on over to i heart faces.

I think you did a great job editing it. I don't think it's overdone in the face at all. Thanks for providing the picture to have fun on. I always like playing with other people's pictures. It adds some good variety to just playing with my own.

I don't know how anyone could possibly make that handsome boy look ANY better, but I'm going to go over now to see if they made the SCENERY look different!
You are incredibly talented~

He is so adorable!!
I had fun with this...I would def. do a more original looking one if I was going to hang it anywhere but I def. had fun trying other things.
WooHoo you for having yours selected, so cool!

I love how you have gotten around to everyone's fixes to leave kind comments. I bet it's exciting and kind of strange to see your son popping up on tons of web pages. :)

Dawn's right...he does look like a little doll!! :) So precious! I've been trying to learn how to fix some of my pictures, and it's not really working out too well...it's hit and miss with me. You are so good at it! Will you give me lessons when I get back home to Geary??!! lol

Your son is precious and I had a blast bursting color on to his red pants and adding a grainy quality. He is great subject matter for this week's Fix-It Friday! I love the locale of this photo, too!!!

Thanks for visiting my blog. Sorry I'm a day late as I am just now making the rounds - and really should be sleeping!!!
