    ok - i tried a 5 min edit job on this sweet little pic of your neice & her baby... i used paint shop pro, starting with the 'push' brush, i removed some skin marks on both mom & babe, then a little selective sharpening on eyes & lips, played with the curves just a tiny tiny bit, converted to greyscale, added a border and heres what i ended up with....

    Well, this is a going to be a long explanation. First off, the lighting was a little harsh. I started out using my cloning tool. Turned the opacity way down to 15% and started 'relighting' the image. I used a brush size from 9 pixels all the way up to 90. This took about ten minutes itself. Ear, childs forehead, cheek, nose on both just to name a few. There were bright spots everywhere. Once I eliminated all the bright spots on the subjects, the top right hand corner was distracting me. I took out the paint brush, chose black, and painted in the black to get rid of white(white is almost always a distraction in an image). Once all the touch up work was done, I adjusted the levels. Fixed the new hot-spots on the image, then used a plugin called Professional Retro used for Photoshop. It can be found on a website that will remain nameless until I can get Marko's permission to post it(it is a list of free Photoshop plugins). So that is how I came to the result. Great image, just needed a little work.

    Photography is more than just taking a picture and freezing the action, or leaving the shutter open. It is more than orchestrating the image with the stroke of a brush. Its the realization and explanation that reality is an isolated experience in which only a specific individual can comprehend during any given time period. - Your Truly!

    I will be trying this again as well. I actually like the full color version of this better than my final product. There is this problem of taking things waaay too far, and its all mine. So, if Marko posts a full color version I will not worry about, but Ill check back in a few days, and post it if he does not.
