Better Late Than Never!

A few weeks ago (ok, ok, a month ago!), my lovely friend Barbara posted a gorgeous picture of her son (The Boy). (Who, incidentally, is only about 6-7 hours older than my Max!)

I said on that post that I’d love to do a play with this photo on photoshop, and so she sent me a copy of the image!

Then my Photoshop stopped working… bad photoshop!

Then I forgot all about it once I’d finally got PS working again… bad me!

Today Nikki reminded me about it, so we thought we’d both have a shot at playing with it…

This was the original:

A gorgeous lil guy and a great photo all on it’s own!

And here’s my wee play…

One eye is a bit too cyborg-y than the other… I need to figure out how to not do that, but other than that I quite like this quick lil play.

I won’t say it’s an improvement on the original, cause it’s not, he doesn’t need improving! It’s just a wee play on photoshop cause I loved the colours, and his face, and generally the whole photo. 🙂 (very well done Barbara!)

Now over to Nikki, who I’ll bet will have quite a few plays on this, cause she’s oh so talented you know!

Sharing is caring:

    It is isn’t it? I very rarely get any like that of mine so when I saw this of Barbara’s lil guy I had to ask if I could have a shot at playing with it on photoshop! 🙂

    That was a fun one to edit – fun cos nothig to really “fix” but plenty to play with. I like your vintage touch and agree about the eyes – I tried a few things to see what would I could get but in the end just left them alone 😉

    I know what you mean! I love your fixes… knew you wouldn’t be able to just do the one! 😉

    Aw shucks, thank you for being so nice about the photo!

    I really love what you did with it. I see what you mean about the eyes, but actually I quite like it – it makes them really striking. It has got a vintage touch to it, he looks very ethereal.

    Oh, and thanks for getting rid of the snot too!
