Day 83/ 365 – Black and White Play and a challenge

I received a challenge from the last picture that I posted.  Someone had suggested that I remove my husband’s shadow and create a tighter crop.  now I’m wondering if I should remove the shadow from the bushes to the right of my puppy.  But what do you think?  Pretty good challenge, I need more practice with my cloning 🙂82_012214_1

But for today’s pictures, I was in a black and white kind of mood.  I really liked the shadows of these pictures.

Day 81/ 365 – Cloning in Lightroom

I’m sure I’ve written this before….but I don’t know what the heck I’m doing.  I signed up for a lightroom class in February and I’m SOOO looking forward to it.  I have a manual that I’m reading, but you know how it is, it’s a manual.  Even if they try to make it interesting, sometimes I think I just learn better by someone teaching it to me and me practicing.  We’ll see how this class goes.

I didn’t have time to take any pictures today, so I thought I’d work on editing the pictures that I took yesterday.  here’s another shot of Charlie and shadows of him and my husband.  I’m trying to edit out my shadow, and thought I did a great job where the bottom of my legs are but somehow I lost it around the thighs and upwards.  What am I doing wrong?
