    There is something weird going on with his shirt, it looks all pixelated...does this mean the red channel is blown? Is there any way to fix it??
    Thanks, ladies!

    Looks like a fun day at the park!

    1. Love his expresssion here, but he looks a little under exposed. Were his hands really cold? They look so red in comparison w/ his face.

    2. LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS! bokeh is really nice (which is such a blessing in crowded situations where you can't control the background). His shirt looks OK here, but I'm at work and the monitor here is less than reliable. He has such amazing eyes -it's great to see them so clearly in this shot1 Great job!

    TFS,

    Thank you!
    I think the poor bugger's hands were really cold, but to fix it would I just decrease the saturation of the reds and then mask everything else out? I have no idea how to approach color issues in PS!

    That sounds like a good plan of action. Also see if you can brighten it a bit. Do the brightening before you do the color correction so you don't take out too much red.

    I am a big fan of the second pic. Your DS is really cute, and I like your composition.

    My monitor is also uncalibrated, so I don't see the shirt problem.

    The first one does look a little under exposed, but he sure is cute!

    I love this one, what a handsome little guy! And I really like his jacket I agree with Gigi that the bokeh is really nice, he really stands out and didn't get lost in the background clutter. Good job!

    What can I say? Easton is a delicious little thing, isn't he? Yes, #1 does need brightening though. Good job, Erin! I can see such improvements since the beginning, although all his little baby pics were adorable too. I was just thinking about that insanely adorable elephant costume you put him in!

    Thanks, Ladies! OK, I brightened the 1st pic...I never know where to stop with it. Is it something that you ladies do by "eye" or by looking at the histogram. Because that thing is scary to me, haha! I took some of the red out of his hand too...

    Thanks, Kaci! I wish I could go back in time to when I first got pregnant so I could tell myself to go buy a DSLR THEN and learn it in time for his arrival! (Well, at least start to learn it!) If only, haha! Oh, that elephant costume...he's SO gonna put me in a nursing home someday! And not a nice nursing home either!

    Using a histogram is a great way to tell that its not blown, but everyone has a 'taste' when in comes to brightness. I usually don't like to go as bright as I possibly can with out blowing, so I can keep more details. I think what you have done looks good, you could bump it up a little more.. You could try warming it up some, which will also make it a bit brighter. Or at least make it easier to see if the exposure is correct.

    It seems everything I shoot is on the cool side even after I correct the WB, and I never seem to pick up on it...
