Photo Finish

Over the holidays, I used Photoshop for what it was invented for - a photo! I had taken a picture of my son with my phone and, for some reason, the file got corrupted {see top image.} I felt it captured such a beautiful moment. I loved the lighting and his expression was priceless - I had to do something. I emailed the photo to myself, opened it in Photoshop and started piecing it back together - pixel by pixel, in some places. I decided to keep a little of the color change that was happening and add another strip across the bottom to make it seem intentional. After a tighter crop, the bottom image is the final result that became a Christmas present for my husband! I'm so glad I didn't hit the delete button on my phone.
