can someone please help me on this one?

This one needs some serious help... I love the photo itself but it needs a LOT of work.. can anyone try taking a swing at it and see if its salvageable?

Thanks!!

Are you trying to salvage it for print? At this size anything someone edits is going to be good only for posting to the web.

I haven't posted a pic on here in so long, but if it works... this is a REALLY quick edit. I'm just a novice in PS, but I like playing with new challenges. All I did was brighten it up a little, and blur the lights.

Edited to add: It looks a little too bright to me now? If I were to play longer, I'd (tone down the bright) remove the white on the little guys pants, try to add more lights on the outside edges, and warm it up a little. If you'd like me to try, I'm willing. Although there are others who can do a FAR better job than me. I just like playing, and learning new things. Smile

Yes I agree they just need brightening, but not quite that much, just a bit less...and personally I like the lights better in the original, they look prettier bright and sharp.

i wanted the boys lightened up some.. all of you with children can appreciate just how difficult it is to get them ALL looking at the same time with decent expressions hence why i really didnt want to have to do this "shoot" again. I love what the PP did with the boys but agree I like the other lights (in my original) better. I have the file and would HAPPILY email it to someone if they could fix it for printing as i would like to use it in our christmas cards if possible. I would crop in tighter too so there isnt so much dead space on the left/right too...

ETA: thanks for the compliment Wink
