Before and after - Paul.R.Lindqvist - Feb 21, 2007

Worked on a old shot today to get some time with my new Tablet. Wink

Keep in mind that i always shoot in raw, and all settings set to 0 or low in camera, thus creating a very bland raw material. I much prefer this since i like the idea to "develop" my raw originals.

Anyway here's the before and after shot.
(to view them properly view the large version links, since the small version arent sharpened)

Great processing Paul. The editied image has her looking much more fresh. The images being brightened up gives her more of a Mono Lisa smile.

I like the processing Paul, it accentuates her eyes beautifully and as Colin says has a freshness to it....
