I don’t know why it’s so incredibly difficult for me to figure out how to edit my pictures well.  I’ve been playing around with being more daring with the sharpening, contrast, and tone curve lately, and I think it’s helping.  But again, I’m not really sure.  I honestly feel like I can’t tell when I make a picture better or worse.  Je suis frustree!  Anyway, I added a lot of contrast, sharpening, lighting, and warming up of Phila’s pics…can someone give me some feedback?  Does it look over edited now?  Is this a hopeless cause?  These pics were really hard to work with for some reason…
