Bath time (with all the white) seemed like a nice place to get high contrast.

- Shadow/highlight
- Sharpen
- Selective color, brightness/contrast, selective colors, hue/sat adjustment layers
- Neat Image
- Resize, save for web

---

Thanks for the comments, and the favorite, Tim! =)

This was shot in the bathtub, an environmental portrait, with a Vivitar 285HV flash reflected off the ceiling.

What makes this work is a combination of:
- All white setting
- Lots of light
- PP (neat image and careful color/contrast adjustments)
- Cute, cute kiddo. =D

The original, for those interested.

Nice job. The high contrast really brings out the over exposure.

If it wasn't for the wet hair and the title, I would swear this was shot in a studio. His left shoulder is maybe a bit bright and lost against the white background. The rest is spot on.
