A Portrait

I was looking back in my hard drive at past years' photos and found this one of J taken a year ago.  I decided to play around with it.  Here is the SOOC (straight-out-of-camera) shot:


What a cute shot that has so much potential, but just not any umph.  First of all I ran it through Noiseware (I absolutely LOVE this program...and it's free!) to reduce the graininess.  Then I used the new free Perfect Portrait action from CoffeeShop.  I just love her stuff!  And its free!  Oh, I guess I said that already.

Pretty amazing, eh?  And here is the black & white version:

I can't decided which one I like better.  I guess I'll just like them both! 


P.S.  I have to say, that's one stinkin' cute subject...if I do say so myself!
