My Little Punkin'

BEFORE
I took this picture with Nikon D90.
f2.8, SS1/30
 I have no idea my ISO settings (probably 100 since we were in a well lit area)

AFTER
The picture was overexposed so I used PSE 8 darkened the highlights, adjusted the midtone contrast.
I also boosted the contrast to improve the richness of the color.  
Then I ran Butterscotch Vintage action at 80%.



I love this picture for several reasons:  1) I am fascinated with hands especially those of a baby and an elderly person.  2)  It shows off Bennett's pouty bottom lip and his cute chubby cheeks.  3) My mom bought him this pumpkin outfit and it was just adorable.  4)  I love all things pumpkin!
