Day 18: Photo of the Day

Before:
My lovely Ms. Dianna graciously posed for this. I used my new lens, 35mm 2.0 at f 2.8; ISO 400; Manual setting; 1/60, with the icky flash.

After:This photo was edited using the adjustments described in this tutorial.
Now that I look at it more closely, I want to go back in and crop out the right side of it. CC GREATLY APPRECIATED, because I want my (big) babies to look their best!

Oh! And poll results. . . look at the poll results and 90% of you liked the Original background with Dianna and Scott on Day 15. Thank you for all your input! Also, to feel better about wherever you are, check my weather pixie on the right and marvel at our temperature BEFORE WINDCHILL tonight!

I think the crop you suggested is a good idea. . . would make it follow the rule-of-thirds a little bitter. Regardless, this is a cute picture and your conversion is great!!

Toni said...

She looks so shy. Nice natural picture. TOni

Sharon said...

Nice photo. Cropping will only improve it.

Mom2Drew said...

I like your editing, but I also like the warm light from the first one...maybe something inbetween?

Val said...

she's so pretty! I like the expression you caught

Sara said...

I like her expression, too. I also agree the crop sounds like it would work really well. On my monitor, her skin tones look a bit yellowish.

Becky said...

I think you're right about the crop. This is such a sweet photo.

To answer your question, I did not get my eyes dilated for LASIK. I used to work for these guys and never could talk them into doing it for free :-) Just a routine exam of the old retinas.

i think I agree with mom2drew... I like the warm lighting of the first one. It's a nice shot though, and she's such a pretty girl!
