    Can the glint on his eyeglass frames be processed out or is this something I will have to live with? Any other feedback would be appreciated as well.

    Thanks
    Hey there Lynn, nice shot.

    I was wondering if you had done any cropping on this shot? This crop is nice, i'm just trying to envision some different cropping options. Also I removed some of the glint for you and darkened the grass a little. Just my opinion, but it seemed a little bright to me.

    Thank you! I did do some cropping. Here is the original before cropping and any of the processing I did.
    And thanks for your help. I like how you improved the pic

    Hi Lynn!

    Good shot and I love the pose in the grass.

    As Shawn mentioned, the glint, in this case, can be fairly easily removed.

    One way would be to use a very small clone brush, zoom in tight, and start taking away the glare.

    In the following example, I did that and also removed some of the catch light in his eyes to make it more defined. I wondered if some of that reflection in Soccer Playerís eyes might be a reflection off the glasses.

    Oh, I also cropped in a little so you could better see how it ended up. You may not prefer this tight a crop on this shot. I also added a little vignette just to see how that would look.

    Hope you donít mind me taking the liberty of mucking around with your shot, Lynn. If you do youíll have my most sincerest apologies and Iíll be happy to take it down.

    Well, that has to be the first time I've ever heard the words "brilliant" and "Terry" in the same sentence! Brilliant is one thing I have never been accused of!

    But you are most welcome, Lynn, and you are certainly right about the Forum.

    Looking forward to seeing some more of Soccer Player.
