There is this great photography blog I recently started following that is a great resource and also lets its readers have a little fun. Every Friday they post a photo that you then download, play with and re-post on your blog. The more I practice, the more I learn...or so someone once told me. (Not sure that is the case just yet). Check out the blog and other people's plays at http://iheartfaces.blogspot.com/
Anyway, here are my plays. The first is SOOC (straight out of the camera).
This is my first play. I played with her eyes and adjusted the levels to brighten her up. Then I went in and ran MCP's color burst action.
For my second play I played with her eyes and again adjusted the levels to brighten her. Then I went into ACR and ran an azalea preset and then in PSD honey.
