Fix it Friday # 50

I haven't had the opportunity to participate in the "I Heart Faces" Fix it Friday in a very long time!  When I have participated, I've rarely added my own link to the site.  However, today I decided I'd fully play along.  Besides the bit of distraction came in handy today! =)  (prevented me from getting into trouble!) 

This first photo is the original that we've been given to fix.  All the following photos were my edits.  Isn't she a beautiful young lady?

Pretty basic here, lightened, removed dark under eye shadows and smoothed her skin complexion.

Decided to play with the saturation, some texture and vignetting.

Decided to crop the image, bring the focus to her face. 


Thanks for stopping by please feel free to leave some feedback, ideas or suggestions as they are always welcomed. =)


  1. Hi Monica!! I love your edits of the photo, her complexion looks gorgeous!! The 3rd one is my favorite, awesome editing!!

    As for the actions I used from My Four Hens Photography, I love these actions and I have quite a few of her's. I have tried many other actions from different photographer's and some of them need way too much tweaking/work but I always come back to My Four Hens (Sarah Cornish) she has a bunch of freebies on her site if you want to download and test them out.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!! Hugs Didee xo

  2. I liked the 4th shot best. It makes her look exciting and ready for the world in all her radiant beauty.

    Wish you could fix ME up in a photo!!


I value your thoughts and opinions.
