Obviously (!!) the bottom of the 3 is the SOOC image *yuck*. It was late in the day, just as it was getting dark, during rain (we were under cover) and with almost no available light.
The middle image is my clean edit using levels and curves, and skin retouching/softening. I didn't mess with the colors or tones because I planned on running an action next.
The top image is my edit with Florabella "Pollyanna - city girl" run on it. Seriously, I think I tried all the actions from the set on this image, and I liked them all. It was extremely hard to choose which one to go with!! I decided on one that was a little more dramatic than soft, because I think it suits this particular image best.
This image was definitely not shot in the best of circumstances, and was right at the end of the session. But I liked it so much, I thought it was worth saving! And it gives me some good practice editing a tough shot. Surprisingly, not really much time had to be spent on this one to go from blah to beautiful!
All the way down at the end, is the same image with a texture applied to give it a more painterly look.
