Thanks Roger! I have a question for all the portrait and PS people today. I'm not much of a portrait photographer and this was really just a snapshot but my question is; what about the highlights on the woman's face? Should they be toned down, and if so I'd love tips on how to do it in PS. Thanks, guys :-) #2487644

Good shot, Steve. Although, I am not a portrait photographer...I have some thoughts and will write to you later today. #2487891

This is cute and like the B&W. I use my contrast and also you can use alittle brush in adobe. Great job. #2489758

Thanks Carla and Shelly! I'll be trying your tips :-) #2489803

Good shot, Steve. I run into the same problem when shooting on the run so to speak. Recently, I used the healing brush on a hot spot,and it seemed to help,but I am sure there have to be a lot of better ways to do it! Let me know what you find out! :-)

Thanks, KK! Carla suggested the clone tool set to darken at low opacity. Probably very similar to the healing brush and it seems to work much better than trying to burn the highlight. Whatever works is the best way, LOL! #2491220
