Shoot & Edit ~ Part One: March 2011

This is my very first time participating in the Shoot & Edit Photo Thursday "challenge" {or whatever. I don't know if challenge is the right word.} The theme this week is Flowers. I hadn't expected to participate in the challenge, but I was downloading pictures from my camera while reading my Blogroll and came across the challenge AND the picture. The shoe fit, what can I say! And so... I'm participating! :) 

Last night, we were watching TV and my gaze kept drifting to the tree outside the front window. The blossoms had just appeared in the last couple days. They looked so orangey against the blue sky ~ fluffy like a puff pastry... The tree & blossoms really looked so beautiful in the streetlight ~ unfortunately, once I got out there my camera was unable to capture the moment. Here is the SOOC picture!

Funny, it actually looks better on Blogger's Edit Post page than in Photoshop.HA! It looks like a big black blob of nothing in PSE. Weird.

Anywho. I'll post the edited version on Thursday & link up to that, too! :) Hopefully I can save this picture!
Link your SOOC shot at Jill's Blog, here! On Thursday, link up your edited shot at Ashley's Blog, here!

Have a great rest of your night!! If you are a newcomer to my blog, thanks for stopping by!! :) 


  1. I think you should do something creative with it - try inversing it. :)

  2. Thanks Ashley!! :) That's a good idea, I'll have to test it out.

  3. SOrry it looks like a black box on my screen too. I look forward to seeing the edit on Thursday :-D Thanks for joining in!

  4. Wow! Awesome shot! I agree with ashley! She told me about inverting ans i tried it once and it was awesomme!
