Before and After

I took this picture of Gabe in my favorite spot on the side of the house where the late afternoon sun is usually kind. Something was off and the picture came out kind of little dinghy. If you look close-up, in my manual manipulation of aperture and focus, his face is not actually in focus at all. Bummer.
With a little work in Picnik, I was able to soften the whole picture, brighten his eyes, turn it black and white and then add some warm tones in. Hopefully it looks like I intentionally was going for a soft effect. But now I love this photograph.
My ten year old baby boy. Just finishing up the fourth grade and his first season of major league baseball which he told his Dad "where the best two months of his life".
