Fix it Friday May 1st

I love playing around with photos. This one I found to be quite challenging. The brighter I went, the more I blew the grass. So I had to play with layers, burning, dodging, multiplying. Took me a while. Still not 100% happy with these two edits, but I did my best :)

I ♥ Faces Reflection

Just a real quick entry for me this time. Last minute throw together for me today. LOL

Click here to see the FABULOUS entries!!

To be considered as a winner for this week's challenge, your photo needs to have a reflection of a face in it (Kids - a child's face; Adults - an adult's face.) Be creative ~ the reflection can be in a mirror, glass, water....or any other way you can think of to show a reflection of the beautiful face you photograph!

(Please note: we are not looking for a reflective, thoughtful look on someone's face for this theme. We will be saving that theme for a later time. This week is all about having a reflection of a face in your photo.)

Here's mine :) Thinking of Vegas. I miss it. I miss my best friend. :(

Sunday Sunday Sunday.....

It's been a week of yuckies at our house. I had bronchitis, Owen threw up, Abby was coughing up a lung. I needed some serious rest this weekend, but alas, I had to work on Saturday. It's a short day, but seriously boring. So I think I'll do something fun. I'm going to post some random things that make me happy to look at, wish for, read, blah blah blah :)

My favorite photography blog. I'm jealous of her talent, to be honest. She's amazingly talented, super sweet, and has a great eye for color!!


Everyone needs one of these in their yard!

I want:

I met this photographer a few weeks ago at my credit union. I want to pick his brain. Not to mention I would love to tag along on his next photo shoot. He owns our local movie theater and offered my son a job. Too cool!
Michael Tackett
