Most incredible eyes – look at this sweet face…

My niece and nephew were in town this weekend. They are just adorable. My nephew, Everett (who we call Bro Baby) has the sweetest eyes for a little boy. I had to grab a few snaps of him. The 1st two were edited with my “color burst action” from the “complete workflow” and with the “eye doctor.” The third image shown in color and then black and white was edited using the “quickie collection” – “crackle,” “underexposure fixer,” and “color flair.” The black and white was run atop that color edit and used “vanilla ice cream.”

I would love to hear which ones you like best and any critique on them. Just leave a comment.

And I had to post this one of my twins’ great grandpa who is in his 90’s. I just loved the wisdom that shows through. This one was edited using “color burst” and then the vintage version using an upcoming action from my new set due out this fall.

Ok – a few more…  Here is a snapshot from the zoo (note this is possibly what caused me to hurt my back – ouch).  But this was worth it (I think).  My twins and their cousins all shoved into a wagon that is suppose to fit two kids.  And yes I had trouble getting them to look.

And this was at dinner.  Bro Baby was eating chocolate ice cream.  This one was just with a point and shoot, but I still had to share anyway…  Thanks for looking at all of these.

    The second one is my favorite, although it was a tough decision.
    The one that really stands out is the Great Grandpa (color version). I loved that one.

    And yeah, could be that between the wagon load and your big old lens……back problems!

    Wait… you can run vanilla ice cream OVER color flair?!? I have never thought of that, thank you for reminding me to mix and match my actions. By the way the b&w looks great.

    LOVE the 2nd one – so innoncent and sweet! I would love to see the wagon one in b&w – maybe with one of your overlays!

    yep – Allison – the quickie collection can be layered atop each other – whereas the complete workflow actions are each meant to be run on SOOC shots. So play more – you may discover even more fun looks.

    I love how you can get such awesome catchlights in children’s eyes. This is what I struggle with, especially that most of my clients have darn-brown eyes. I’m unable to pick up those fine details, or specs as I call them, in the eyes. Any advice?
