Ok Cristi, lovely portrait but technicaly could be better, the top hair of the child is burned out, the eyes maybe could have been spoted with the "healing brush", the middle tones were put down too much on the curves, therefore, you see it on the left shoulder of the child, there`s a very distracting highlight on the middle left of the frame you can have spoted out with the "clone tool".
But after all, it`s a beautiful and expressive photo from that lovely child, technical CRAP apart, gave me pleasure to look at.
Technique isn`t all, there`s more in one image than that:)!
You are right, but it is a street candid, I needed to act fast and the original is alot overexposed, so I needed to heavily adjust curves, actualy not curves, but channel mixer. Those things you see on his shoulder are actualy some lints in the childs blouse, that is more obvious in color. I didn`t do anything to the eyes, and about that distracting button, in the middle left, and even the one in the middle right, maybe I should clone those out. Thank you Andre for the indepth, I really apreciate it, I know tehnically is far from perfect, but I like the expression, above all that too
