Does a sunshine action work here?

I processed this late last night, when I should have been in bed instead. Now that it's morning, I'm not totally convinced that my processing works for this image. I used Phaunt's Sunshine in my Hand action.

Edited with sunshine and nothing else (well, cropped it to 5x7 ratio)

I think your edit looks better. I don't know what a different action would look like b/c I am not familiar with actions. Sorry. :confused:

thanks! I ran the action on a whim, I have never used it on an inside shot before.

no idea about what action you did, but whatever it was, I like the result! Very, very nice!

I like it! I would try to reduce the hot spot on her cheek though, I got a 251, close to being blown. I read to keep it under 245 (or was it 248?) if you want to print.

I actually ordered a test print before I even saw this. Smile it printed fine, which is a relief. I knew I was cutting it close. thanks for pointing that out though, I really appreciate that because I don't often notice when I'm cutting it close.

Phew! That's a relief. I am the same though, tend not to notice on my own stuff if I am cutting it fine.

LOVE it

I also love that you show the sooc, you took a nice photo to a stunning one so thank you for that. (sometimes I get stuck on the fact that when someone show's a photo it's not how it came out of camera which frustrates me when I look at mine)
