locked out

for almost a week now. Silly p.org. Wink

I know I've missed a ton, but wanted to let ya'll know I'm back and will try to catch up with you guys.

Here are a couple pics I have been working on. Too bad they were on an uncalibrated monitor. :confused:




I know it's soft, but momma still loves this one. Heck, I would have tossed it if it weren't for the fact that the mom is one of my close friends and she wanted it anyways:

Glad you are back! Lovely family pics. Biggrin Fav is #2. Their smiles don't look as forced! I think the last one is cute, especially with mom and dad's almost matching tennis shoes!

hey kellly! i was wondering why you weren't posting on here much lately Blum 3 cute photos! i like the second family pic too. they look more comfortable and she looks alot more relaxed. in the first one she looks a bit tense. Smile the last one is really cute! i love how the colors pop out a bit more on that one then the rest of them. what kind of processing did you do on these? Biggrin

Thanks ladies!

Sadie, the shoes are actually A's 2 older brothers. Smile

As for processing, all I did was a slight curves layer, sat layer set to +6, contrast bumped to +5 and brightness bumped to +4. Sharpened, and then did a mult. layer reduced to like 40% or so and used a soft brush to take it away from the middle. That was it. Smile
Off to update myself on the other threads. Wink

How fun! I love them! Even the one you would have tossed, I think that's adorable! The skintones in 2 seem a tad bit off to me, but I'm uncalibrated, too.. :?

oh, I didn't know you were locked out! I love seeing these pictures. I don't know that I've ever seen Jodie's entire family at once like that. Terrific job capturing them. And welcome back from locked out world. Lol

Great shots! the first two look a little cool and all seem a bit over sharpened, but otherwise wonderful!

it says I don't have permission to see the file! You can't unsharpen really I don't think!.. just don't use dropshots maybe? Flickr supposedly adds some sharpening too, but not that much I guess.
