I’m rockin’ the shot!

Rock the Shot is having a June photo challenge and the theme is DADS.  I couldn’t be more excited!  I had just taken about a million pictures of Livvy and the hubby on our vacation in Sarasota, FL.  I had the following shot in mind.  It fits the theme perfectly, although it would fit the theme LOVE as well.  I say this because I love the way she is looking at her daddy in this picture!  She is so in love with him and, as you probably guessed, him with her!  One of my favorite parts of vacation was watching them interact with each other!  I could watch them forever!

My processing was quite simple.  The original came out pretty great and the lighting was almost perfect so I didn’t have to do much.  Personally I like my pictures to pop just a little more than I can achieve in camera so I boosted the contrast slightly so that I wouldn’t lose too much detail in the shadows.  I also added some warmth (which is a personal preference), sharpened her eyes, and used the spot healing brush on some black stitching on the back of my hubby’s shirt.
