Fix-it Friday #78 at i heart faces

This Fix-it Friday photo was submitted by Susan Keller, an IHF contributor. What gorgeous bokeh!!! Here is the original photo:


And here is my edit:

Using ACR and PS CS5:
~ adjusted the exposure and white balance
~ cloned some green and bokeh to cover the white blobs at the top of the photo
~added a curves layer set to screen at 30% opacity, masked just on the boy’s face to brighten (similar to center fill light)
~ran Noiseware at low opacity
~ran Florabella Luxe’s Sweet Sunshine action, lowered to 40% opacity to add warmth
~added a vignette at 20% opacity, erased over boy’s face

Thanks for looking and come check out the other edits at i heart faces!
