My first photo challenge!

This is my entry to the pixel perfect before & after blog hop

I'm very excited to share these with you!  This picture is of my baby girl.  It's one of my favorites!  I'm loving the contrasting color of her turquoise tutu against the bright white of her surroundings.  I did, however, choose to create a black and white also just to showcase her eyes and cheeks which I colored in.

The editing software I used is http://www.picnik.com/

My SOOC version picture settings are:
shutter speed: 1/500
aperture: f/3.5
ISO: 200
No flash used
focal length: 28mm

My Equipment:
The Canon Rebel T3i 600D 18MP

So here it goes:

Adjusted exposure, touched up face, brightened eyes, softened hair, etc.

and then finally adjusted to black and white and colored in her eyes and cheeks.  I liked it so much that I used it in the header of my blog!
