augh, that darn Job thing, seems to be no cure for it :P
I have truly only been using manual settings on a camera just under 2 yrs but I ABSOLUTELY LOVE having a camera in my hands
Now if we could add 6-8 hours to each day. . .I have so much to learn, that would def. help!
# 1 is a little better but a bit yellow. I played around but because the image is poor quality(with this I mean right click copy kind of poor quality not thats its poor quality photography) I had to mess around with cloning to work on the bubbles but it was more the colour I was trying to fix. Obviously I fixed his skin tone which wasnt too bad, just a little yellow. I fixed the background colour which popped him out more, and sharpened it too.
Its just a quick play
For the second one, did you use photoshop, specifically did you use auto tone? this will be your problem. It has turned him entirely too green/cyan
I warmed up the photo, adding in yellow and magenta until he looked better(again the poor quality thing is hindering here) but you'll see what I mean. I brightened the background up to a dirty white, probably a little too much as I blew it out a little
Anyway these are on my flickr account set to private. I hope you understand what I am trying to explain.
Canon 40D & Tamron 18 - 270mm lens & Canon 580x II Speedlight and a lot of enthusiasm
When responding to signatures, I'll give my uneducated, self taught opinion and respect that your hard work and fun went into producing the images you share. Please feel free to take everything I say with a grain of salt

The font in #3 needs to be changed. Its a little too eerie and messy for a cute mom/baby portrait

Kids and babies!
You can hardly go wrong with them. I must say they are difficult subjects at best as you have to take it 'in the moment'.
For a person who only snaps at my grand kids ... I think these are fun and well done. Of course listen to the others and keep it up!
I have been away from the site for a while and expect that it will be hit or miss on finding me for the next few wks! Thank you, thank you, everyone for your comments/suggestions/help! It's very much appreciated
As for the auto tone, it's a no, however, I have some add-ons that I've been playing with and that may be the culprit! Might also be a result of trying to do a curves layer adjustment with not entirely all the knowledge I should have ??!!
What a doll. Love the tub shot, my favorite.
God, make me the man my dog thinks I am...
