Fix It Friday – Number 72

Here’s my play for this week’s Fix It Friday from I Heart Faces.  This touching photo is by Julie Rivera Photography.

Original

My Edit

My steps in CS5:
Levels adjustment layer – brightened overall and masked off baby’s shirt
Curves adjustment layer for skin tone – brought up green slightly to reduce magenta
Selective color adjustment layer on man’s face – reduced red and yellow to remove redness/sunburn
Duplicated background layer with soft light blending at 13% opacity
Another curves adjustment layer to lighten man’s face only
Crop, Resize
USM – 10%, Radius 40, Threshold 0.
