We Wanted A Pool But Settled For Rain

Yep, the plans were to head to the Dr's Lake estate that I use from time to time, but due to some minor complications we were unable to use that location. SO I took Jenny to where I grew up... good ole Granniema's place! We had just gotten into everything Jenny was getting super comfortable, Christy ran from the gnats that were attacking her... and sure enough DOWNPOUR!!!! UGH, Grandma had even brought out the tractor for us to use! booooooo rain...

We still got some fun shots of Jenny all wet, which was the plan in the first place :)

If only everyone knew what was on the other side of this fence, if anyone has been there with me or knows where I grew up... ya'll know that Jenny is feet from...... (dramatic dum, dum dummmm) Dead People..... lol

And as many of you know, if you read the blog or follow along on myspace, I'm in the middle of a revamp, logo, blog, photo signature etc etc... This revamp includes how look at my photo editing, what techiniques I use what I want to showcase... I tried a little something new here, well not new but out of the norm for me... and I frankly love it!!!!

I love it too Jess. What did you do to get that look of the last pic? Is it a filter? These are great!

I agree... the processing you did on the last shot suits that photo best. Much more moody and feels like rain and works perfectly. Love it. Way to go girl! :)

Jen - thanks, it's a combination of an action and some color adjustments :)

Mel - I love it too! I was just browsing through some things clicked this and went woah! I love it! very dark and just fits!

Melissa - Thank you so much, trust me when I started my stuff was a bit... well it sucked LOL there is def a learning curve :)

Kenzie - Thank's so much!!! And thanks for checking out the blog!!

Tara - My love... wish you were there! it was so awesome getting caught in the rain!!!

So I've been known as the "lightning queen" when it comes to editing and I really need to slow it down and look for the best of the best shots, and tweak them more than I currently do, the results are way more than typical!
