Winning Smile!

Uploaded: May 31, 2008


Whitened eyes and teeth, smoothed skin, converted to sepia and added back a hint of color using a color layer set to 20% opacity. Cropped, resized and sharpened for web viewing.

Hmmm.... I think I also must have whitened the backdrop. Not sure which method I used for that... either dodging the hightlights at 4% exposure (to keep the hair!) or adjusting the levels and bringing back the details with a layer mask.

Will attach before picture...

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.
