So, I'm combining two fun blog hop / challenge / thingies today!

First off is Raw(E) found at Sailor & Company.  The rules to her weekly challenge is to post an unedited photo that fits within the weekly theme.  Oh...unedited is scary, lol.  The theme this week is Running!  Here is my SOOC (straight out of camera) shot of Leah running on the playground.

 I promise she's back there ... somewhere ... in the distance.  I love to edit so I'm also entering this photo into Pixel Perfect's Before & After Blog Hop.  Here is my edited shot:
I edit with Picnik and I'm not completely sure what my camera is right now.  I live off the motto "It's not the camera (or editing software) that make the picture."

A great picture and beautiful edit. You made the colors pop but not too much!

Stefanie said...

Really nice edit, WOW! Love how you changed the focus and the slight pop of color!

I really like the crop. It really draws the focus to your daughter and that super cute sweater. =0)

Love the crop and the focus is back on your daughter. Really like the blue of the climbing frame with the pop.

Thank you for your visit. xxx

Love how the color is do defined!

I wish I had more time to learn/do more with photography, but there just not enough time!

Thanks for stopping by my blog (Oh Snap!) and letting me know about picnik. I'm a follower of yours now too!
