Fix it Friday Thursday

Tonight I'm doing my own version of Fix it Friday Thursday. A couple of days ago I took this picture of my niece at the beach. I couldn't wait to get home to try to edit it!


I tried a bunch of Lightroom pre-sets from Coffee Shop and finally settled on the mocha. I added a texture from Jessica Sprague, did a little magic around her eyes, and last but not least I cropped the picture.

I just posted it to my sister-in-law's Facebook wall.
I really hope she likes it!

I LOVE it. It is my favorite so far. I am seriously amazed at your eye and talent. You need to come for a little working trip to the country and teach an old, saggy, worn out mom (me!!) a few tricks :)

Love them!! Keep it coming!

You did such a wonderful job editing this photograph. I just received Lightroom 2 days ago. Just got to use it tonight to upload some RAW night photos I took of the moon rising and fortunately a car drove in front of me while the shutter was open. Made for a great photograph.

wishing you a scent-sational Friday!

Do you know of a good photo editing software that is fairly user friendly? We've been going back and forth looking at some different ones, but don't really have a clue what we're looking at!

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in large initial investment.
Now, I feel good, I started to get real money.
It gets down to choose a correct partner who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the income with me.

You may get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info.

You may probably be very curious to know how one can manage to receive high yields on investments.
There is no initial capital needed.
You may begin to get income with a sum that usually is spent
on daily food, that's 20-100 dollars.
I have been participating in one company's work for several years,
and I'm ready to let you know my secrets at my blog.
