Fix-it Friday at iheartfaces! #41


It's Fix-it Friday... this photo has a touching story behind it.

A brave family.


Here is the message from I Heart Faces:

"To go along with our "We Are Family" theme, we wanted to highlight a family that is very special to us - the Zwart family. Angie (co-founder of i heart faces) is friends with Jeff and Adrienne...and Adrienne is also an active participant in our weekly challenges.

The dad in this family has been struggling with cancer for years and they found out the devastating news in December that his cancer is now terminal. They are now doing everything they can to enjoy the rest of the time they have together on this earth."

(My Edit)

My Steps:
I used Photoshop CS4

::Adjusted the brightness and contrast
>>>>Lowered the brightness a few notches and upped the contrast a tad.
::Upped the vibrancy almost all the way to the right
::Added a little more saturation
::Burned the edges using an action (can't remeber the site)
::Added a lens flare to the left since there was a lot of light coming in
::Changed the color balance
>>>>less Cyan, a tad more magenta and a fraction more of yellow.
::Cropped the file using manual size
