My 'Edit Me' recipe

I'm linking up to the Edit Me photo challenge and am VERY excited!  Okay, when am I not excited?  I know, I know.  I just love the Edit Me photo challenge!  Yes I say this every time I participate, but I can't help myself!  This week's photo was provided by Kristi at live and love out loud.  I was a little intimidated by such a gorgeous subject and great SOOC shot!  The only thing I wanted to better, was to make her REALLY pop.  I think the contrast boost, sharpening, and conversion to black & white really worked.

My Edit.  My Recipe.  My PSE.
Brightened, boosted contrast, and sharpened eyes and mouth.  Used the spot healing brush.  Used an eye pop, basic black & white, and pro edge vignette action from Paint the Moon.  Lastly, I resized for the web.
