I posted 2 of the same pics of kellen today on flickr; one in black and white, "windows to the soul",(posted previously below) with just his one eye left blue. the other was the color version of the exact same shot. i always have difficulty catching the detail in his eyes. they always just look dark. but this shot today actually caught the flecks in the blue. i tooled it as much as i could in flickr. i was very happy with the black and white, but not so much with the color version. i liked the eyes, but his skin tones were too red , the more i toned that down the more i lost the sparks in his eyes. unprompted by me, a lovely flickr friend took that color shot, and with her Photoshop skills she did what i had tried but failed at. this clearly shows that with a good picture and a good program and the skills to use it, magic can happen. thank you Marina. and soon i too shall have this lovely PS program thanks to the love of another flickr sister (heather my ttv master) ! AND lessons!!! what a blessing flickr has been for me! in friends and knowledge. thanks all.
