    I prefer the 3rd. Then again, I am personally sick of the dreamy/hazy look and prefer stronger realistic things. I know it’s all a matter of taste, but you asked!

    I LOVE this. I’m new to actions and have no clue what to do other than hit the Play button. It’s annoying to see all this potential but not have a map to get there. I like straight answers. I’m a Mom+Wife+Photographer+Everything and don’t have time to mess around with trial and error. I need straight answers and information. This tutorial just made me a paying customer!

    The 3rd one – I like how the yellows and greens are brought out as well as darkening the blacks. :)

    I prefer edit 3. I’m all for simplicity that is timeless. Portraits now a days have too many bells and whistles and if you ask me, that will not last long.
