    Great subject choice, but I'm not a big fan of my "good side," and with my lack of technical ability and creativity, I'm sure it won't be all that great, but I think I'll participate nonetheless.

    I'll give this a shot. The picture isn't the best, but I'll give you a before and after of my first ever PS age correction work. heh

    I know it's not great, but for my first time trying something like that, I think I did okay. :p Oh, and the blue washing is the crappy Xenon flash on my camera. :\ Thanks for looking.

    Interesting story behind that one. I was taking photos for this party and this pretty girl ripped my camera from my hands, handed me her drink and took a photo of me. I didn't really oppose to it. It was quite funny actually. Usually people look at my camera like its some kind of torture device and I was surprised she even knew how to work it.


    ps
    MissMia when you say post new photos do you mean take a new photo for this assigment? Sorry I didn't read it right.

    Well, I've got to wait awhile for my surgery to heal before I can shoot new photos of myself.

    I was the one who shamelessly titled his entry for shadow and light "in the shadow of cancer." It was a shameless ploy to garner a sympathy vote. And it worked! I got a vote! Unfortunately, since that photo which had been taken the day after the surgery, the wound opened and it's taking awhile to heal and close.

    I also had posted a photo of me trying to come up with something for that challenge. That whole thread of posts is gone, so, since I have no shame (obviously) I'm posting it again.

    This was me trying to come up with something for that June challenge.
