Took this near my house with my little neighbor . she was telling me a ghost story about the house at the end of this road and so I thought I would give this an errie treatment using desaturation and the burn tool. Made me think of the times I would promise to be home in time for dinner and get lost in play, only to be scared walking home as the sun was setting..

Good to see something a little different and engaging in the top 10 here.. Kind of getting sick of the bleak landscape over-photoshopped thing meself.

This is fabulous.
The point of view, tones, leading lines and where she is looking all work exceptionally well!

This shot I like, very Joey Lawrence with the editing, got a nice atmosphere and look that I dig. 8

I love this picture - made it a favorite. I love the desaturation of most of the color.
12/04/2006 02:16:55 PM
That's really nice, with the dolly in the wagon and the dirty knees. I didn't know little girls did that anymore. Very poignant and a real blast from the past. 10
12/04/2006 10:02:54 AM
nice coloring
12/03/2006 02:42:08 PM
Great processing here.
12/03/2006 01:18:41 PM
Hauntingly beautiful. I see this doing very, very well and consider this one of my pics for a ribbon. Good luck!
12/02/2006 06:04:06 PM
Excellent work. Great use of DOF! 10
12/02/2006 05:38:45 PM
Great use of selective colouring/toning. Love an image that tells a story.
12/02/2006 11:22:33 AM
beautiful rendering. DOF makes this work really well. excellent work - love the fact she's looking away - it goes with the 'dirtyness' of her clothes. Hope that makes sense. 9
12/02/2006 12:34:02 AM
I LOVE this photo! It really touches me. Everything about the little girl is perfect. She looks so natural, like she's very tired from a hard day of play. The way you have processed it compliments her and the mood of the photo perfectly!
12/01/2006 10:31:23 PM
Great processing,clasic candid pose ,10
12/01/2006 11:07:14 AM
this is a very sweet portrait. i can see it as a painting. beautiful job!
12/01/2006 06:47:18 AM
A lot of emotion here. Very nice work and the desat works well here.
12/01/2006 12:18:18 AM
Incredible post editing. I like the old sense of it with the minimal saturation of colors and the overriding brown tones. Love the title as well. Great DOF
