Photo Editing

This is something I love to do.  My dream someday is to get a nice DSLR camera, set up a sutdio in the pole barn, and start a photography business.  I love doing it.  I actually took photography classes in college...developing and all.  Loved them.  In the meantime, I use my point and shoot at fun angles and a little Picasa fun.  Someday I will have my dream....someday.  In the meantime, I play.

This is my original taken this summer at our family photo shoot.  This is probably my most favorite picture of all time.


And the edit:


I actually like both of them, but the latter seems to be a little warmer- especially if I'm doing a lot of browns, blues and tans in the house.

That's a great photo, and great editing. I love the warmer tones of the browns and blues.

Thanks ladies! Elizabeth, that's not an ocean- it's Lake Michigan. Unsalted. :)

I love pics like this and I agree they are both good, second one is warmer and crisper.

I use Picasa, too. Isn't it fun? I took photography classes years ago, but I felt my eyesight wasn't sharp enough to be able to pick the optimum focus when developing. But I love my digital cameral and Picasa..just for fun..not dreams of making it a career.
