Before & After #27

I posted Sophia's 6 month photo session earlier this week, so I was in the mood to show you another before & after from it. Following some feedback from last week's post, I think I'll continue to post the whole flow of the way I edit. I generally like my images bright, as you definitely see here.

Canon 5D w/ 50mm f/1.2L @ f/2.8, 1/1250 sec, ISO 400

Below you have the SOOC (straight out of camera) image, the image when complete in lightroom 3, and final tweaking in photoshop CS3.
