Sick

It's been no fun at my house this past week. The stomach flu is slowly making it's way through all my children; 2 down & 1 more to go... change that, make it 3 down.

Photobucket


1/125 & 3.2, flash fired
Editing info:
  • Brightend up in curves
  • Turned down the master saturation to about -35
  • Turned up the saturation indivdually in red, yellow, & blue (to bring out the pink in the skin tones and the color in the couch and blanket)
  • In curves I selected the blue channel and dragged down the blue highlights a bit to give it more of a yellow tone
  • Ran a light unsharp mask; amount: 20%, radius: 30 pixels, Threshold: 4
  • Last, resized & sharpened for the web

Poor little sick fellow! And this photo sure calls for the face to be out-of-focus! Thanks for filling us in on your processing. . . it's easier to learn when there's detail!
