natural light, converted to b&w and then history brushed back some color, lowered saturation.

Very nicely done. You mentioned art history brush - are you using Photoshop? I am so addicted to Photoshop 7. I get lost in time when working on photos.

Angela, this is truly a fine photograph. I love the mood created with the b&w & the things you selected to bring color back in. This is one of my favorite things to do with photos of kids, and you mastered it here. Great job!

Maggie Before and After Using PhotoShop 6
Lowered saturation to - 65, softened the purple rings under eyes, defined her eyelashes with the burn tool, straightened her crooked pouty lip a bit with the liquify button as well as straighten out her chin a tiny bit, smoothed her skin with about an 11% opacity paint brush of her skin tone, used the burn tool on her hair, removed blemishes, removed white dots on shirt, just slightly burned her lips and eyebrows for definition, dodged the whites of her eyes slightly.

Thank you all for your nice comments! Liza: I am using Adobe Photoshop - the 6.0 version and 2.0 elements. I just posted a photo the other day called Maggie Rose that I did a lot of small tweaks to in PS. Here it is for you to see ... the before and after! One of my favorite things to do in PS is lower the saturation in the photo, I think it gives it a nice antiqued or hand-tinted look (w/o all the work). And as you can see in the before and after, that red shirt was just SO red ...

Dale Ann: The reason this photo even came about was because I was trying out my new free standing backdrop stand and backdrop. I was just being silly with my daughter Abby - the photo props look a bit more formal than her! I absolutely love spot coloring. I think that the key is to lower the saturation in your color so it isn't so contrasting with the black and white part of your photo.

Angela, here is a pic of my son I did in PS. I did brighten his eyes up a little because I liked the contrast with the b&w in this one.

Great shot! I love that it is so casual and the topper is the foot turned on its side!
