Added kk-whitewashed texture with a couple layers, one in soft light, one in screen. Then I added a layer of contrast and increased the red and yellow saturation.
It needs something else though. A bit of difference in color between the two chairs maybe.
I want a house with a wrap around porch...filled with colorful chairs, rocking chairs, porch swing...to sit in and relax and enjoy the magical sounds of the outdoors. Reading a good book. A cup of hot tea. Snapping shots of the wildlife as they visit.

That's Emily on the left. An awesome person for the little that I know her. She's got a wonderful life ahead of her.
That's Lexi on the right. You probably recognize her as she is my model quite often. She followed us and was an extremely patient companion during this session. Emily and her hit it off quite well and Emily wanted a picture with her in the end.
Well...Emily has a wonderful smile.
Lexi....well I have sat here for thirty minutes laughing at this photo. At Lexi's expression. She was so over the whole entire session thingy by this time. She totally refused to 'smile'. Normally I can throw a few quick trick words her way and she will perk up and smile....quickly...oh so quickly...but enough to capture the shot that I need.
Oh NO. Not here.
She does have a bit of a stubborn streak. Being a guinea pig so often for my practice sessions. She knows how to turn her head away. Or just plain...give me the silent treatment.
I laugh. I am rolling on the floor laughing my.....well you know the rest of it.
Oh my...... I really needed that laugh.
She is very cooperative when she is in her own 'skin' doing the things she really loves.
But then...who isn't?!!!
I hope you get just as much pleasure out of her expressions as I do. That is my purpose for sharing.
