    I layered the original, desaturated the layer and then used the eraser tool over the layer to reveal the colors in the original photo. For the flag in the glasses I took a pic of a flag on top of a building, resized it, then cut out an outline of the eye area of the glasses and then copied the cutout over the flag and copied/overlayed the flag onto the photo and then changed the layer setting from normal to soft light to overlay it onto the glasses. I hope that makes sense.

This is a real attention grabber! Her expression is adorable and you framed her eyes beautifully with the bright colors. Excellent PS work too.

Dolores you are confusing her with her sister. This little darling is only 4 1/2 years old and she is my winning model. With my "Little Flower Girl" photo of her, I won her a spot on New Your Times Square with a Kodak Photo of the day on 6/7/04. Her sister is the 10 year old.
