More Fix it Friday Fun

I just love "Fix it Friday" over at I ♥ Faces. I just can't resist a good "before and after". Here's the sweet little before shot:

Beautiful little guy in beautiful surroundings - love this. I especially love his chubby little fingers and sweet curls.

I started in Lightroom where I cropped, and adjusted the levels (blacks and contrast were too low for my taste). I also decided to add a slight vignette and to desaturate the entire image a bit to give it more of an antique look. I like how his features pop just a little bit more now:

Then I went to PS Elements, where I added a pattern layer to give it a little bit of a textured canvas look - I'm so into textures lately. I also added a couple of different frames. Which version do you like better? What would you have done differently?

You did a really great job! I love your lightroom fix. He is so cute and you totally pumped the cuteness up : ) I also love your texture background. I always think that people who can do textures are the smartest kinds : )

Adorable photo! I love how you made the features pop, especially the eyes! Beautiful!

Wow, you did a great job (and he is so precious). I love the first change you made before you added the pattern texture to the shot.

Fantastic! I like the red frame better, but actually think it stands alone great.
