What's Your Play

I've been peeking in on dolcepics for some time but this is the first time I've decided to try her What's Your Play challenge. It's a great concept! She posts a pic and then we all get to play with, creating limitless variety in a single image. I love this photo -- what a beautiful child and honestly, I'm not sure I'd want to change a single thing. This is the very thing that often keeps me from "playing" with my own photographs! There is a freedom in playing with someone else's:) I ended up playing with some effects, light curves and photo filters to make these changes. And I finally discovered the "old photo" effect that has been alluding my search for several days. You can see the original below.

Hi Heather! Thanks so much for joining us for WYP! I'm glad you had a good time experimenting with this image giving it that old photo effect, textures and deep shadows. I really love how everyone has a different way of processing the exact same picture. :) Hope you'll play again!

I love the texture you added to this photo.
