What's Up January 5th 2012

After reading Lucia's post about picnik, I figured I should try some not-over-editing on my pictures.
I've used picnik for a while because my photo service offers it. I don't pay for the premium features, like Lucia, but I can still make my pictures look awesome with their fix-it programs.

The lighting a few days ago was amazing. So with a little editing....

Before
I didn't care for the red bokeh but had to stick with it. I think it looks a little better after some editing.

Every year, somebody (I have no idea who) mows the hill behind our house and leaves a bunch of haybales that are very sufficient to play on and to roll around. Somebody rolled two down into some trees at the base of the hill. These are from last summer- and it's so fun to see them here in winter (even though it feels like spring!). I think after editing this one it's almost over-edited, but I was trying to figure out exactly what I should be doing. It wasn't exactly an easy picture. :)

So, picnik rocks and editing is fun. You have to overedit sometimes. :)

Those pictures are so cool! I especially love the the very first one, both the before and after versions. God's handiwork is amazing, no? :)
