Awwww, sweet baby and capture...not sure what you did, but very well done! #8730444

Thanks Shelly - it was done with a bit of processing in Photoshop. Paint out what I didn't want with white, duplicate the layer and make black/white. Then mask and paint back some of the selected color with a soft low opacity brush. #8730700

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.


The following truth is one of the core philosophies of BetterPhoto:

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
