the darkside gallery...but then thought, nah, i can be semi normal for a little while!!

Awesome job April. Love these. In the first shot, it looks like a jet stream in the background. The blue and white is really striking together.
Excellent job girl. Hope to see more.

Love these.
I love that first shot. With the blue sky!!!

These are all great.

I am not one to critque but this was what someone told me the other day when I did some butterfly shots.
I thought the advice was awesome and really appreciated the tip.
If you just add a little contrast that butterfly will really POP.
I couldn't believe the differnce it made when I did it with mine.

I am getting contrast happy now....lol. I don't know tons about all the ps stuff but every little tip helps. (at least for me it does....lol)

Great shots. Love the idea of taking the pic with your son every year too!!!

I am right there with ya aprilraven.
I am trying to figure all this stuff out with books, the internet, and a wonderful site called the TPF!!! hee hee

Trust me I would have never tried it on my photos without someone pointing me in that direction. So if I can pass it on to someone else, I will gladly do so. I need all the help I can get!!!!!! =)

Beautiful shots there Aprilraven! As the rain splatters against my window here, it's so nice to see images of sunshine, blue skies, flowers and butterflies. The last shot in particular is gorgeous.
