PP included softening skin, sharpening, applying the bleach bypass filter, converting to sepia and then adding back a color layer with the opacity set to about 15 or 20% and brought back the eyes even more and slight cropping. I think that was it. I'll attach the before...

Michelle, I like both shots, but the one you submitted for the contest looks a wee bit better to me. Great portrait. Love it.

I really like them both. Could you tell me what program you use the bleach bypass filter in? #6613238

Thanks everyone! Whitney... I use the Bleach Bypass in Photoshop (CS2). There are two versions.... Currently I only use the simulator which is a free version. Just google it! I love that filter!! And will probably purchase the actual Bypass filter at some point as I use it so much! #6613579
