Hi Beth, that's an interesting way to do it.. I'll try that next time.. I do think though I would have left a little more "shine" as I think it "flattens" the face a bit too much.. nice tip tho.. thanks for sharing the video.. makes it sooo easy to learn. :up:

Thanks Lynnya!  I love experimenting and trying to figure out alternate ways to do things.  I thought I was being conservative on knocking down the shine but I could have lowered the opacity on that layer after I neutralized the bright highlights. That would have brought them back a little. I'm glad you like the video. I know I sound like I'm bored but I'm really not!  I just find it really weird talking to my monitor.  :)

The shine on the faces is also present in the original?

(I talk to my monitor too, it never answers me though...)

Hi Hannie,

Yes, the shine was present in the original ... especially the children. Like Lynn, I notice BW adjustments do seem to bring out the highlights more. Sometimes it's hard to know what looks best. Guess in the end it is subjective.

Even though it has already been accepted, I appreciate the feedback and suggestions. All goes into the hopper, er ... brain and of course, my mighty notebook of info.  Have no doubt I will put all of them to good use.

I also talk to my monitor and if I get too excited Shadow hops up to give me the "calm yourself" look. If that doesn't do it, my little guy just takes me out for a stroll!  ;)

Have a good day and glad your computer issues are over!

Lyn

Lol, Lyn I forgot to click on the first page of this topic.  The original photo is right there with highlights and all!

Shadow sounds adorable.
