Congratulations, Erica. It's a great shot. I love the framing of her face with the hood and, of course, that wonderful expression. Well captured.

I honestly don't remember Teri, sorry. I think it might have been an action that I bought. My usual way is to convert using the lab color method then hue/sat to get teh tone I want.
