The first isn't really needed for CC. It was taken in the car this morning on the way to daycare. I know it's a mommy goggle picture, harsh light and all, but I liked how it turned out in BW. My question is, how do you think (or would you) go about toning down the buckle in the bottom left?

We went to a park this evening trying to do another shoot of my DD. She had very different plans. She wouldn't let me put her down on the ground for anything. So, I found this landscape shot pretty. I did a vintage processing with texture. (the larger version doesn't look quite so sharpened) Does it do anything for you?

Yes, it does!!! (do something for me LOL). I really really like the comp, and the vintage effect. Nice row of trees that look so identical! I like your B&W too. As for the buckle (which I didn't notice till you mentioned it), maybe blur the logo a bit and add some texture or something to make it blend in?? Just a guess.

It's not just Mommy goggles, it's a great pic!!! What a cutie! I like Amy's idea for the buckle. I wouldn't have noticed it either if you didn't say something.
LOVE the trees! I really like the vintage look here. I wonder how it would look if it all were in focus. But it's a nice path and takes your eye right thru to the end of the photo!
Thanks girls, you're too nice
I guess I just looked at the picture and analyzed it so much I started seeing things to make it bad
Tara, I'll have to close up my ap on the trees when I go back to see if that makes a difference. Maybe between 3.5 and 5? That should be enough to keep the DOF wide for this, right?
Jennifer!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm LOVING both of these!!!! On the first, you can burn the buckle. I'm not good with the whole burn tool though, so I'm not helpful there. And I really love the landscape photo, it's beautiful.

I did try to burn the buckle, but it just didn't look right. It actually made it stand out more after I did it. I did use the burn tool on Rylee's cheeks, forehead, and chin to ton down the brightness (though none was blown!! I was way stoked about that)
Also, there is some pink in the crape myrtals (sp?) in the orignal pic. I thinking about using the dodge/burn tool to bring that out PP. I think the picture may look neat with a pop of color.
Ok, can you tell I just learned burn/dodge in my photo class this past week
