OH! We sooooo have that same shirt! And good work, mama, with your PSE post-production! I read her post last night, and I, too, started playing around on PSE after her lesson. I'm so excited to know she uses PSE!

I love how yours turned out...great job!

I'm off to pack for Florida!!!!!!

Thanks for sending me over to check it out!! You did a fine job...maybe a teeny bit less yellow would be good? But the photo has MOSTLY reds and yellows, so it was a tricky one. Try enhancing a photo with LOTS of colors...greens and blues, too, and I think you'll like the results EVEN more!! Great work!

I have to agree. Since I have a Bachelors in Photography hopefully I can give you my opinion without you getting upset.

You did an excellent job with the enhancement. However, when it comes to having people in the exposure you want to make sure you watch the skin tones first and foremost as whoever is in the shot will be the area of emphasis. He has a yelloe tone in the enhancement even though the colors look brighter.

Your on the right track though. It just takes trial and error just like anything before you really get it down. What an AWESOME start you are off to!

Nice Job!!!

Hey girl! Great experimenting..I really need to take the plung a bit more myself. I'm so proud of you for really diving into learning all this. Isn't it fun? Isn't it a LOT to learn! GEESH! I'm a wee bit overwhelmed at times. It's okay, I'm not a professional and not sure if I'll ever be but learning to take better pics of my boys is the goal here. :) You're doing an amazing job!

BTW....you won a fun bloggy award over at my blog. Head over and check it out! Hope y'all have a great weekend!
