So I came across this great tutorial. He shows a much easier way to 'burn' the edges of a photograph, easier than my way. I also learned the background of cross color. I think the above picture looks great, but with a little added extras, it looks so much better. I love the results.
This picture need a lot of work: I had to get the surrounding people out, did a little cross color and vignette (burn the edges) and I kept Steve's hand in, even though it looks a little creepy, because he was splashing her. It just made sense to leave him in. When Steve downloads our photos, he has them at such high resolution, that when I crop them, they still look crisp. I think the results on this one are amazing.
