Fix It Friday: Sweet, Simple, LOVE

The best love of all is between a little girl and her daddy. Please enjoy.

The Original:
Given to me by I Heart Faces

Same edit, two different crops

Now that you've seen my edits I will explain why I cropped and edited them the way I did. I don't normally crop into someones face like I did in the first shot, but there is something so beautiful about their beautiful expressions of love that I really wanted you too see that you might not get from the second shot. The second shot was cropped just a bit mostly because of all of that empty space to the right. Empty space always makes me uncomfortable especially when someone isn't focused in that direction. The man's eyes are for his baby girl only and that girl is more than in love with her daddy and that's what I want you to see. I gave it a smooth, almost creamy edit and brightened it up a bit plus some contrast to help them pop just a bit. I hope you liked it! Please look at more photos by clicking the button below. They are all beautiful! What a wonderful original to have worked with!


  1. I love the close crop! I totally agree with you about wanting to focus on their expressions and interaction between each other. Very nice!

  2. I, like you, don't like cutting off portions of heads, but sometimes it works and you really did bring the focus to their expressions for each other. Thanks for working on my image!

  3. I love your crop ~ it really works as you wanted it to. Nice colours too :D

  4. I love the first! it is really centered around their expressions!

  5. Nicole, I really like the second crop; something so dear about her little hands. Thank you for stopping by and for your lovely comment on my blog!

  6. What a sweet sweet photo. I love the full frame of the second one too. Cutie!

  7. What an incredibly special moment :)
    I love the first crop :)

  8. Thank you everyone for all of the wonderful comments! I'm really enjoying "fixing" photos, but it is still intimidating. Very intimidating. I'm glad you like my fix!
