Well, this was our attempt at a family picture for the Christmas card. First of all, when we got to this location (WELL before sunset) there was not as much light as I had expected. It's kind of blocked by a mountain and some trees and I had to crank the ISO and ended up using noiseware and it's still icky. I am beginning to hate my Rebel and I'm scheming for an upgrade :). Anyway, we ended up with no pictures that I love. Or really even like! DH wants to try again but I just don't know if I am up for another session with the tripod, timer, and kiddos iykwim!
Here is one attempt at an edit after multiple head swaps and pitiful attempts at cloning. I am still stuck in the "sooc-looks-better-than-my-edit" phase so I would appreciate any input y'all have on my processing.
post ACR and headswaps:
Hmm..it looks kind of different here than it looks in PSE. Maybe I oversharpened? I used Heidi's at 2%.
