I Heart Faces, The Creative Crop





This week's them is cropping, creatively. I hope my entry lives up to this task! Be sure to go and visit I Heart Faces to see how everybody tackled this theme - there are some really, really great entries!

The first photo is my SOOC shot and the second is after I ran the sepia action and increased the saturation and then ran three framing actions, using the color selector tool for the inner border of the frame to match the main color in the photo. These two cuties are brothers that live next door to us.

This is such a neat crop. With the sepia tone and the close up on the faces, it totally changes the picture. Reminds me a bit of pictures of the Kennedys men when they were young.

By the way, Happy Birthday!
