Fix-it Friday #81 at i heart faces

This Fix-it Friday photo was submitted by Michelle Johnson, an IHF contributor. She took this gorgeous photo of this gorgeous couple at a photography workshop. I love this capture, it’s so evocative! Here is the original photo:


And here is my edit:

I wanted a very warm and vintage feeling look to this. Using ACR and PS CS5:
~ adjusted the exposure and white balance (warmed it up, brightened, added a touch of fill, and decreased contrast)
~ ran Noiseware at very low opacity
~ cropped to the ROT focusing on woman’s left eye
~ slight levels adjustment (wanted to keep as much detail as possible in the shadows)
~ sharpened details, set to soft light at 35%
~ added warmth and a touch of haze
~ increased saturation
~ added vignette set to overlay at 30%
~ sharpened

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