Week 50 good to WOW Edit Holiday Traditions

I haven't even had a chance to look at the other edits and at this point I imagine every one is enjoying their Holiday time, but it will hang over my head all weekend if I don't just do this...so here are my edits from Monday.  I do love this picture even though the focus is a little softer than I want, but it does capture my Sunflower during the holiday...

Original:

Edit:
I basically took it back to the lightroom import presets, sharpened, and cropped.
Ideally I would take the picture again, but Sunflower now wants to see the picture as soon as I snap, so I only have one chance.  After looking and asking her to go back so I could take another, this is what I got.
Yeah, I know.  The tree isn't in the shot at all, but we do get the head of sleeping dad instead of his feet...

Then for fun...
Converted to BW...the preset I used had split-toning to add a yellow tinge;  I changed it to red in the spirit of the season.

I hope you have a most blessed Holiday Weekend.  As for me and my house we will be celebrating Our Savior's Birth with Joy and Thanksgiving!

I love how you lightened up the 2nd photo! Your daughter's hair is beautiful! I know the feeling of taking a picture and hearing "Can I see??" while having the camera snatched away from my hands.

Holiday blessings!

Beautiful shots, and as usual, great info on the photography process. What a beautiful child! THanks for sharing her with us! Merry Christmas to you.

Love your edit - and I know what you mean about Sunflower immediately wanting to see the picture. I think that's part of the reason I take so many pictures of kids...ya never know when they'll get out of being cute for a moment. Or something like that. Have a great Christmas.
