Before and After

This week I am really hoping to be inspired.  I feel as though I am stuck in an editing rut.  I had a really hard time doing an edit that wowed me.  I wanted something really special but hard as I tried, it just did not happen.  I do really like the photo I chose but that's probably because it is the only good photo I have on my little sister and I from her wedding (I'm on the left, just in case  you were wondering).

Before



After


I would love some constructive criticism this week.  I took this myself with my Nikon D3000 and 35mm 1.8 lens.  Edited in Lightroom 3 Beta 2.

I think it's lovely!! you are both beautiful!

I think this is a nice conversion to black and white. I might have also softened the skin just a bit before desaturating. I love how you got the skin tone almost totally white without blowing out the rest of the image. Sweet photo!

I love this picture. Actually, I don't know if you can do this, but my sister-in-laws ex likes to make black and whites but leave one thing with color. I think this picture would look really good if you could get the color of the lei's in there. Just a thought.
