Back From Vacation

Hello everyone!  I did not fall off of the face of the earth. My family and I just got back from a little vacation to visit my aunt and uncle in South Carolina.  We had a nice visit with them and we were also able to visit my cousin and his lovely wife for a bit.  While we were down there my uncle gave me some computer lessons! Yipee!  He showed me all sorts of goodies, like how to download and where to find what I downloaded and how to get it to do what I want it to do.  Sounds pretty simple to some people but I am computer challenged to say the least!  He also helped me with some new software and I thought I would play around with it and show you what I came up with.  Now, keep in mind, I have NO idea what I am doing.  I was just played with some buttons and tried to give this photo a different look.  I see such great photography and lighting on other blogs and have no idea how they do it so I thought I would give it a shot.  I wanted this photo to look bright and grainy so I messed with saturation, brightness and some other stuff!  Real technical huh?

Here is the original photo:
 Now this is the stepped up version:

Now keep in mind this picture was taken with Mike's iPhone so it may not have been the best quality but I think it turned out okay.  Emma loved the beach.  She could have stayed all day and collected seashells all day.

Please come back again soon, I will have a project for you.

Thanks for stopping by!
