Edit Me Challenge

Hi friends!  I hope you're all having wonderful weeks.  Can you believe tomorrow is Friday?  I sure can't--it seems like this week just flew by! 

If you haven't entered a picture yet, you still have time to participate in the Finagle a Foto Challenge.  Click HERE to enter.
 
This week's judge for the Edit Me Challenge is Stephanie from Behind the Camera and Dreaming. For this challenge, we got to edit  little boy, Jonah.  Fun, two weeks in a row we get to edit some cute little ones!

Before...


After...
I wanted to brighten it up some a soften it as well.  Here's what I did: 

-  I slightly increased the exposure, recover, and fill light.  As I increased the fill light, I increased the blacks a bit as well
- I really increased the brightness and let back on the contrast a tiny bit
-I decreased saturation and lowered the lights and darks
- I also increased the luminance and color quite a bit. 

What do you think?  What would you have done differently?
