It’s Fix-it-Friday at I Heart Faces today so I thought I’d play along.

The original photo:

Here’s my fix:

Starting in Lightroom, I used a lot of fill light and converted the image to black and white with soft shadows. Then in Photoshop, I ran Pioneer Woman’s awesome actions - seventies (20%), colorized (20%) and heartland (10%). Lastly, I sharpened the eyes just a touch.

Gorgeous image! It was fun “fixing” it.
