Fix-it-friday #1

I know its Saturday but I haven't had a chance to upload these until now.
This is my first fix it friday. This is a great opportunity to work on editing skills and learning new things!

Here is the original photo.

First edit
In photoshop
Doubled the layer and upped the curves for the face.
Erased the over exposed areas.
Copied the background layer again and then set it to overlay and brought down the curves to bring out the blueness of the sky.
Added a bit of texture
Unsharp mask on just the little girl layer a bit.
Added pioneer womans 70s action, but turned the opacity down to about 40%
enhanced the eyes with dodge & burn

Second edit
Same edits as first but went into lightroom and added the golden sun preset and adjusted a bit.
Also smoothed her skin and removed the blemishes from the elbows to make her look even more beautiful :)

I can completely feel the warmness of the sun in the last photo.
Hope you like them!

Yay or Nay??

I took this of Wesley recently and was playing around in photoshop and lightroom and love making the eyes "pop" in a photo. I am completely amazed and the sharpness and light that a lot of photographers bring to their images, and even though this is only with a P&S camera I tried my best to bring that out. I hate my camera. I am so excited to be getting a real dslr camera in a couple weeks. I NEED it to practice practice practice everything, especially shooting without a flash and getting amazing photos. That is something I have not been able to master. And the camera I have now does have manual mode, but the focus is not good, and every photo of my baby is always blurry or noisy. I'm not even sure where to start to get good photos with the p&S.
Well heres the photo. Any tips or suggestions would be great!

P.S I thought about changing the name instead of Color my World Photography & Design to my name. I still feel that the colors represent me so I kept them that way. I'm still working on the design for the watermark/logo, but this is something I whipped up in a few min for now. 
What do you think? Yes for new name, or keep the old one.


Things have been slow...Classes started back up. I'm taking digital media which involves a lot of illustrator projects that I'm excited to be working on. I wanted to share my first project. Re-creating a photograph into a vector image using shapes. It took a long time for me to do. And it definitely wasn't easy. What do you think?? Suggestions?
