I Heart Faces is one of my favorite sites. Every Friday they post a photo for you to edit. It's a great way to work on your photo editing skills, although I haven't had the time to play in forever!!
Here's the original image which is already an incredibly beautiful photo.
I lightened her skin tones ever so slightly and added a bit of gossamer blur. Didn't really make much difference.
Added a bit more punch by enhancing the colors.
Then converted it to B&W
And then Chocolate!
It was so much fun playing with this image. I really can't decide which version is my favorite.....I love them all. The original photo was already perfect....and it's hard to improve on perfection.
