Big Blue Eyes

All images edited with  Yellow Sky Actions Wowza at 93%

I also brushed off the POW layer from the face of the first one, just leaving it on the eyes, hair and background...Popped the eyes a little and cleaned up her face a little too.
(see before and after photo at the bottom)

Same action but used noise reduction instead of brushing off POW

Same photo in black and white (Scenic Landscape) then I tweaked the contrast a little for a more custom finish.

The first photo SOOC (Straigt of off Camera) Second after editing.

Celebrating Dad.

It was a quick snap but my favorite from the days session.

I captured this moment of my Father In-law and his 3 sons during a resent trip to GA....While I photographed the children at the waters edge I looked up to see the men patiently waiting at the picnic table for us to move to the next location.

Even as grown men they still all look up to their DAD...He is a wonderful man, mentor and roll model for so many over the years, not just his own boys...40+yrs as a high school principle and many years as a little league couch, he has been a positives example of what a man can be to hundreds of young men over the decades....Truly blessed to have him as the Patriarch of our family.

Color vs Black and White

Just playing around with a photo of my stunning 4yr old...(yer I'm not a biased mommy or anything)...Usually she is pulling faces, wriggling and blurring everything up or giving me the most scolding looks you could ever imagine...But here she looks so sweet, and finally I can show off her eyes without her signature hooded glare.

Now I can't decide if I prefer it in color or bw lol
