Sweetness Of A Child Editor's Pick  
My 4 year old nephew posing for me. I then Photoshopped the photo to give it added effects.

Shannon Collett     That is a great photo. What did you use on Photoshop to get this effect.

Thank you for the kind comments, Shannon and Amy. I just got a D70 and was eager to experiment with it, since I've used film for 15 years. Shannon, I brought up the photo in Photoshop in color, and then desaturated the entire image. I used my history brush to bring the jeans back out in color (lessened the opacity), and I used a plug-in called "old photo" to give it the sepia and slight grain effect. There are other ways to get this effect, if you don't have this plug-in. If you are interested, just email me, and I will be more than happy to help out. Thanks again.

You offered a work around for the sepia, soft tone look. I'd love to have it. I work in Photoshop Elements and am looking for ways to enhance the monochrome conversion. Many thanks for your help. You will treasure your child's photo for years. It's quite emotional. Incidentally, I love my D70, too.
