iheartfaces – Fix-It Friday # 60 : Teenager



In keeping with I Heart Faces’ theme of Teenagers this week, we have this photo of a teen for this week’s Fix-It Friday.  What a classic teen pose:  Hands in pocket, an “I’m-too-cool-for-this” look.

This one is a bit more of a challenge to fix compared to the previous weeks’.  I had to lighten and sharpen the overall photo a bit without the sun coming out way too bright.  Specifically, I had to make the boy young man pop more.

The rays from the sun were so gorgeous and they match they tie-dyed rainbow colors on his shirt that I was very hesitant to crop the photo to bring the subject more in focus.   So, for the color fixes, I just kept the photo as is –no cropping.

Fix-It # 2teen fix 2 (70s)



Fix-It # 3teen fix 3 (bw)


Too cool, too cool
Yeah, I’m too cool to know you
Don’t take it personal, don’t get emotional
You know it’s the truth. I’m too cool for you.

Great fixes! And I agree...this one was very challenging. I love sun flare...but when it is over done, it's hard to edit.

Love #2! Nice job with keeping it full size. I got mad at the pole and box and had to crop them right away but they are not distractig in yours. :)

LOVING the second fix!

Lynda said...

I like the first two fixes the most and the first one the best. I wonder what #1 and #2 would look like blended together? Great job this week!

I had a hard time with the decision to crop vs. not as well!

I like fix #1 the best. What a difference a few edits here and there do to the picture. The sun shining against the boy's back looks really great
