    I was organizing my Photo's from my honeymoon and thought I'd share some I took while in France visiting the American Military Cemetery in Normandy France. It was poring that day... But I think it adds to the feeling of the location.

    C&C is Welcome!

    Very somber images.

    While your husband's photo is not technically perfect, I have to say that the angle he shot from created quite a dramatic image and that in and of itself makes the photo very interesting. I might straighten it a bit though, it leans to the right.

    I know that you said it was raining, but even with that, your color seems to be a bit flat. You might want to try adjusting levels in pp. Your second photo is underexposed, but you should be able to lighten it up a bit in pp. I really like the angle you shot the markers from especially in #3.

    No. I do not have photoshop yet, I organize and edit them in Picasa, But when I upload them to photo bucket, it only uploads the original. However I did not touch these ones.. I usually will just use Picasa to do some light croping, when necessary, of my Niece and Nephews soccer shots. I would love to learn photoshop, I do think there is alot that can be done to help them!

    I agree my husband's needs to be straightened, right now I do not have photoshop yet. So I have been using Picasa to organize them, and do some light work (but any work is lost when I upload to Photobucket! ). There is a straighten function, but when I've done it in other photo's I think it blurs it a bit. I am going to go today to pick up photoshop, after Soccer.. But I've never used it before.. So I am sure I will have TONS of questions tonight!
