"The ebb and flow of will is like the movements of the tides... "

It is great how life rolls and flows.  When I stop and think about it I am amazed at how many people I wouldn't know had small things gone differently.  This amazing lady below is a dear friend of my sisters and through that connection we have become close... if for no other reason that blogging.  Today I take on Ashley and Jill's challenge of editing an Adult portrait.  In this challenge as in all my editing I have one goal: to make my "subject" (ie the lovely person(s) I have the honor to shoot... sounds so much nicer than "subject") pop!  Let's see how I did.



So this one was pretty simple:  I pulled up the light a bit, I removed so shadowing from under her eyes and brushed over it to blend it in and then added a bit of glow light in the back ground.  Took less then 6 min!  And again done all with Picasa Google's free editor!
