Fix-it-Friday: Pretty in Pink

This little girl so cute, making this a fun photo to fix!  She had the most beautiful eyes and skin and the lighting was wonderful!

Here is the original photo:

Sometimes I forget all that I did, but here is what I remember...

1) I adjusted the levels and added a soft light filter
2) she had some marks on her legs and paint on her arm that I removed
3) I put the eyes into a new layer and adjusted the eyes.
4) Sharpened and boosted the saturation just a little.

(I need your opinion... my husband does not like the eyes in this picture, he thinks it is too much.... what do you think?  This is not my final photo, but it was in the works and I wanted your opinion.)

Next I did something that I rarely do... I used an action.  I added raspberry tea from coffee shop. 

And her I used the b&w with raspberry tea, but added my color photo as an overlay. 

Check back later because I have been working all month on an October photo scavenger hunt and I'm posting it later today after I add 1 more picture from today. Have a safe and fun Halloween!

I love the final photo. I use elements so don't really use (or know how to use) fancy actions and things. I'm still learning though and the effect you've used here makes for a beautiful photo. Many thanks also for your comment. It really does give me the confidence to try new things. x
