Anyway, as I was looking at this picture with a critical eye trying to decide if it was a keeper or not. Whether a cropping would make it better. A boost or a frame. It's not a bad pic. A nice memory keeper of a cutie. Nothing wrong with the pic.
Upon closer examination, I noticed there was something a little unusual. It totally slipped by me at first. But it shouldn't have been surprising as this kind of thing regularly seems to show up in our photos. So I tried to bring in a bit of contrast and color changing.
Hmmm, still something just unusual. So then I tried a little special effects but the pixalating was a little strong.
But wait! There it was. The thing that was trying to shout out at me. The thing that didn't belong in the picture. The unusual that isn't so unusual around here. With a little cropping and sharpening and clarity it brought it into focus.
Welcome to my photography world.
This post brought to you by the wonders of Picnik. Which is closing it's virtual doors in April. The thought of which has sent me into a state of grieving and near hyperventilating panic. I do not handle change well. I had gotten know this site so well and could navigate it like nobody's business. It was set up perfectly for the tecnologically unadvanced such as myself. Anyone got any ideas of another photo editing site that is as easy to use as Picnik? I will miss my editing friend dearly. It made my pictures look good without stressing me out. Why do the good ones always go way too early? Sigh.
