    I like the first one. clean and sharp. the second is too frothy for me. Is frothy a word? 😉

    Your subtle changes really enhanced the photo while keeping it natural looking. Great edit!

    Very nice Misty. I like that you removed the color cast from his suit. I would not have thought of that.

  13. •Misty Sparks• says:

    Thanks, Wenderful! I didn't even notice it on his suit until I started to edit the first photo a little bit more & seen that he had the blue/cyan in his hair & went to remove it.

    Thank you Kate, Caroline and Alice! It didn't take too awful long to remove the casts. I've learned a lot while nosing around on the internet looking for different techniques. There are lots of helpful people out there willing to teach you!
