The image looked so good I didn't feel it needed much so I just added a couple of small touches.

I wanted to take another try at this little cutie. I think I'm starting to figure out how to get rid of the "easter egg" colors that vp gives. Also the base of the tree was bugging me, so it had to go.

Sanda, that's perfect. The funny thing is right before you had posted that, my husband was telling me to put a flower in his hand! How cute!

Cheryl, I like that look too.

Jen....What a beautiful picture of your son. There are so many wonderful submissions. I really like them all.

Chuck posted the VG overlay and that is what I am playing with tonight and wanted to work on Cameron.

Took orig. worked curves. Smudged then added the overlay VG.

Thnx for such a nice shot.

My first thought was to put one of those , dandelions (I think they are) in his hand with it half bown off and the little pieces floating arounf him but I couldn't find what I wanted do I settled for the flower.

Sandra....I forgot to add that I added the dandelion! I had the same idea of the blown look and found a picture on the web but could not get the detail on the small pieces.

I know others have added to this picture, and I wanted to give him a friend as well.

Jennifer:

An adorable picture. My son turned 5 today, so this one really tugged at my heartstrings. How quickly the years pass.

- - - - -
Chuck:

The introduction of Kaiya was inspired. Nice job interlacing the fingers. That really sold it.

- - - - -
Sanda:

Well placed touches. Again, inspired.

Jean:

The dandelion was perfect.

Quick recap of the layers palette (top to bottom).

* BW (copy), Luminosity, 10% - layer masked in a little detail
* Paint and clone - used this layer to paint and clone over some areas that had "gone white" + airbrush a little color into his jumper
* BW (copy) + Find Edges, Darken, 40% - layer masked for selective blending
* BW (copy), Color Dodge, Inverted + GBlur (radius about 8)
* BW=Merge of 2 layers below
* Channel Mixer adjustment layer (monochrome) 50,50,0,4
* Original background

Happy weekend everyone.
~Danny~

Jean, I love the photo. I need to try that VG out myself. The dandelion was a perfect touch. With those bulging cheeks of his, how can you not think he was blowing on the dandelion!

Tyiese, that looks so sweet too. Our neighbor has a horse and whenever I take Cameron over to her so that he can see her, he just squeals and giggles -- especially when her whiskers tickle his hand.

Danny, congrats on your son's birthday. I cannot believe how fast this first year went. It's been a complete blur! I love the B/W version. I tried a couple of ideas, but never could get it quite right. Yours is very nice.

PM, thanks for the compliment again on the photo. It's such a hit-and-miss luck with me to get a decent shot. Hopefully, I'll get the hang of it someday!
