Touch-Up Tuesday....

Been having a little fun today checking out some of the pictures
I have taken in the past couple of years. While playing in the 
old stuff I came across this one.... 


and using just the tuning levels in Picasa I turned it into this.... 
et voila....

Increased the shadows, a tiny little lift of the highlights and add some fill light. 
The point of this is that I want to show how you can make a difference without
all the expensive software and bells n whistles. 
Anyone with a good eye for the tricks of the light can create beautiful family 
shots right from the corner chair whilst watching TV!!!! 

Thanks to PaperHeart Camera for hosting Touch-Up Tuesday.
