Edit Me is back! hooray!

Edit Me is my favorite photo challenge! It really challenges me to make the photo the best it can be. This week edit me has returned with this cutie pie and his sweet mommy as co-host/guest judge!
 
Edit Me
 
 I actually love a natural sunflare, but wanted to make some tweeks to this one. In Lightroom I adjusted the color making it more vibrant and clear. I also used the adjustment brushes to clarify his face some. In CS5 I actually cloned out some of the sunflare on his face, then added an addition sunflare for fun. I also ran and adjusted a couple of PTM actions (I can't remember now which ones I wound up using for the final edit). Lastly, using the paint brush I added a little blue to his eyes, set to soft light and lowered the opacity. 

What do you think?

I love the communication and connections one simple comment on a blog can bring. Lifetime friendships are formed, grown, and flourished in this little box. So, basically the pressure is on ;)
