Before and After

I took this shot of our friend and his son on Saturday at Ash Cave. This is the shot, straight out of camera.
Then I played around in Photoshop Elements, using my trusty guidebook, and got it to look like this.
I'm not totally happy with the lightening that I did around our friend's face, but it's better than the original. Like I've said before, I don't have aspirations to be a professional, but I do enjoy playing around. I've looked into taking a class on PSE just to get more comfortable with the program, so hopefully I'll get to do one this summer.

wow, great work, I like how you brought out the beautiful reds. I have the hardest time when people are back-lit. Good recovery on the face.

Thanks for your helpful advice! Congrats on your pregnancy! It will most likely be better this time, since the first is always worst... Least that's what they tell me. I'm so ready to meet my baby girl! Good luck with the brother-sister thing. I wanted a sister so bad but love my little brother so much. She'll be ok either way.
