i heart faces: black

I captured a couple of happy faces lit up by the glow of the campfire Saturday night...

I added a lot of blue and cyan to counteract the reddish/orange light from the light. What do you think? Did I add too much or not enough?

  19. I love that their wearing shorts around a fire. Girl, you know I can relate. Halloween night we made smores with friends and it was 65+ degrees. HEHEHEHE....However, I will love sitting around an outdoor fire in January without freezing to death.

    I do love the light in their eye, the focus is great, and their smiles are so sincere. I think the edit really adds to the mood, but I would decrease the blacks just a tad.
