Good to Wow: Couples/Self-Portrait Edition

Well, I just completely missed out on Monday's SOOC posting, so I figured I'd cram it all into one post. And...I didn't actually take this photo for this challenge; I took it for the Joy of Love Challenge, which, if you haven't been following, ended February 28, and I only got to like Day 9. Sad, huh? I may still get those photos posted yet, but for now here is my SOOC photo for Good to Wow: Couples Edition...
SOOC Mark & Me


That's my husband Mark and me. I've known him for 30 years, been married to him for almost 16, hope to have another 50 with him. He's my best friend and soul mate. I couldn't imagine doing even a moment of life without him.

Here's my first edit:
Mark & Me

All I did on this was crop and then run Coffeeshop's Perfect Portrait action. I brushed on White Teeth at 30%, Eye Define at 100%, and Smooth Skin at 50%.

I also wanted a more subtle edit. So I took my last edit and converted to sepia, which I adjusted to 60% opacity.
