Nic and Leo

We had a great long weekend and I took advantage and got everyone for a photo shoot on Saturday. Here is one of my favorites from that day. I love Leo's face because he looks so cute trying to make Nicolas laugh. And Nicolas was loving all the attention from his Papi.

I'm learning Photoshop Elements 8 (PSE 8) and after taking the skinny mini PSE course I feel a little better equipped. I downloaded The Pioneer Woman's PSE actions and played w/ them tonight. Here is the SOOC picture.

And here are my two edits. One is a clean edit, I ran it through ACR and then played a little w/ the layers and that was it. The B&W was an action and I just tweaked one of the layers, I think it was the bump layer to 70% opacity.

So what do you think? How did I do for my 2nd try at PSE? [my first try was for my Christmas card family photo but I don't want to reveal that just yet :) ]

Have a great rest of the week!


  1. These are both fantastic! So glad you're enjoying PSE now. :)

  2. Very nice! I hope you enjoy the program, it's always such WORK to learn editing programs, isn't it?

  3. These edits are wonderful! I'm so excited for Kim's class too - I have no clue what I'm doing - LOL! :-) Both edits are equally great...what a cutie your little guy is!
