The Tooth Fairy is a harbinger of joy. If someone deserves this title, it must be this girl at the same old Siem Reap market. Technically the image was a disaster, but the face was too good to leave aside.


I had to do a b&w conversion in Aperture, then blur the background, dodge the face, add sharpness, overlay and noise so in the end it didn’t turn out too bad. There’s a lot you can do in Aperture 3, leaving the need to fine tune an image in Photoshop  only to very specific tasks.

And here’s another version where I’ve done a heavier dodging and added a frame.
