I added texture but kept the texture off of the baby. I also adjusted the white balance and exposure. I shot with a Canon 5d Mark II and edited in photoshop CS4.

I can't wait to see all of your awesome edits!

  13. First, great shot SOOC. You are finely honed at your craft. The edit is well done too. The texture was nicely applied and edited. (Seems to be your favorite.) :-) I have a question though: Do you desaturate your images in general? It seems you like to pull the levels from the right side and sometimes loose a little detail in the highlights. (But it looks very good, not complaining.) Do you change hue at all too? Just trying to get a finger on popular technique. Thanks for hosting!! (Now go and relax with baby for a moment.)
