Fix it Friday- "cooing baby"

Original photo

Fix #1


Fix #2
OK, so what's this you may ask??? Well at I ♥ Faces they have "Fix it Fridays" and today I'm participating in fixing one of the photos entered by a fellow photographer. http://www.iheartfaces.blogspot.com/
It's just for fun, no contest. But, I thought I'd share with you a little bit of what's involved in editing a photo that's not bad, but could be better.
For Fix#1, here's what I did:
(In Photoshop CS3)
cloned out baby acne and imperfections
cropped and rotated photo
brightened/contrast
upped saturation a bit
ran MCP's Powder your face action to even out baby's skin
used "Touch of Light" in MCP to lighten chin and forehead
ran "Eye Doctor" to brighten eyes
ran "high definintion" also from MCP
For Fix #2
after doing the above to photo ran MCP's "Brownie Sundae" and that's it!

I love how you made it brighter and close enough to see those itty bitty baby eyelashes!
