And Then, She {Snapped} Challenge!

So I'm going to share my photo for this week's Show off Your Shot over at And Then She {Snapped}.
Like Father Like Son!
Here is the Before for comparison (plus I'm also entering it into Pixel Perfect's Before and After!)
Photobucket
This was taken last night of my husband and lil' man! I love it, the focus the simplicity and the joy and giggles showing through on Dillon's face. I just opened up the image in Adobe Camera Raw and Auto Adjusted the white balance and added some expsoure and fill light then upped the sharpness and "luminance" then opened in Photoshop CS5. From there I just ran one of Nelly Nero's B&W actions from her B&W set..I think it was "Smooth Black and White"..but I adjusted layers to suiting and saved! Hope you like it! :D

I also came across this link-up at Louis' Life. It's called Thankful Thursdays and I thought WHOA! I love to be thankful for things and give God His glory for all the blessings in my life. I am thankful for these two; my WHOLE life are the two guys in this photo. They're who I live for, wake up for, and get through each day for/with. I love them and am definitely thankful for them!
and then, she {snapped}

Nice edit/conversion. One thing I like to do on a B&W conversion like this is to add a little grain (in ACR) to give the image a "pre-digital" look. (I'm an old film user where grain was part of the deal.) Thanks for sharing! Here is my entry.
