Before And After

This week's shot is from my recent trip to visit my mom.  She and her husband asked me to take photos of Dan's son, who is graduating with my sister Jill this year.   We did not have a lot of time and the day was very dreary but I got a couple of shots that I think turned out pretty good.  Does anyone have any tips how to tone down red cheeks?  It was cold and windy so his cheeks got redder as the mini session went on.

This was taken on my Nikon D3000 and with a 35mm lens.  Edited in Lightroom 3.

Great original, but that edit is quite nice. I love the golden tone and the clean up you've done with the crop. Very nice.

I love the warmth too. I haven't used it yet, but Rita at CSB has an action to remove red from skin...

Maybe that will help?
