Before and After

I like this picture. I really like sunflowers, and this is a bright and cheery picture.

But, it is not very interesting. So I cropped and added some "sunshine" so that it reminds me of a hot summer day. My favorite kind!

I like it! If you like my shots, you need to visit Pixel Perfect for more before and after fun! And if you want to play along all you have to do is show us your SOOC (straight out of camera) shot and then the edited version. Link back to Pixel Perfect and link up your post below! Feel free to share with us your editing program and camera gear too!

I've been closely following "Canning Week" over at Ott, A (A Latte' with Ott, A) and Jen (From Mess Hall to Bistro) and am (kind of) going along with the theme showing how you can use your canning jars as a lovely vase. You should check them out though, for all the great recipes and tips that they have!

  3. Really great.... love what you did with it! Nice crop!

  4. Firstly, I love sunflowers (not like) LOVE! Secondly I love them even more in a canning jar vase. Fabulous idea!!!!

  5. Great edit! The crop made a huge difference and I think the added sunshine was a wonderful touch. Nice!

  6. Great edit...what kind of berries are those? Luv it with the sunflowers!
