My BIG Brother

BetterPhoto.com Editor's Pick   My BIG Brother
My BIG Brother

---
These were the children of dairy farmers whose cows were entered into the competition at the Middletown Grange Fair last week. Her big brother had snatched the little girl's attention from the slow, dullish cow activity.
---
This is entered into the DD category. The original is displayed in the Remark section. There were two main "problems" with it. The baby's face was partially obscured, and her eyes appeared to be crossed. I had to borrow a portion of her face and hair from another shot and also "moved" her lazy eye and converted to black and white using TOPAZ ADJUST Toning.

This is the original, with the baby's face partially obscured and her left eye turning in.

Amazing work Michelle, lovely image here!! Too bad it wouldn't be this easy to fix her lazy eye in real life.

That's some incredible DD work, Michelle! The result is a priceless look of fascination, beautifully enhanced by the sepia tones, for a very special portrait. Well done!!
