Fix-It Friday

One last Fix-It Friday before my vacation to the Florida Keys TOMORROW!!  This week's photo had some white balance issues and was underexposed.

Original Image from I Heart Faces:


























My first "normal" edit:


My second edit with a little more flare:


Finally, a black and white conversion (my personal favorite for this image):

I love the bw conversion too! Do you have a link to how you get a great BW?

I love the bw conversion. Do you have any suggestions for doing bw in CS4/5? I am trying to get better at it but not having so much luck....

Genevieve - I haven't played with CS5 at all...but for CS4, I generally use B&W actions from TRA (Totally Rad Actions). A bit of a cop out, but they are always a good starting point for me, and then I'll go into the curve and adjust it to my liking.
