I converted this photo of Bethany to black and white, via PS then I deliberately blew out the image using curves, and dodged/burned to enhance her eyes......

It was getting late in the day and it had been a long day for her.... tiredness was starting to catch up..

(she got second wind and was singing on the karaoke later I believe, though!)

Hope its ok.....

Thanks Sandy and Julie. I am no expert with curves. I keep practicing and deleting the layer over and over again LOL! They say practice makes I will keep trying...

Hello Jeannie, I love to do just that and sometimes fall asleep at the computer, lol...lovely bit of work which has an artistic feel to the way you have kept the eyes bright and sharp, from there everthing features well. Good work.

Yes, a very artistic piece here. The lighting is just right and she will love this shot I think.
